Cigna and Centura Heath (which includes Penrose Hospital) are in contract renegotiations. Both sides seem optimistic that a resolution will be reached by 2/1/2018. If an agreement is not reached, Centura providers will no longer be considered ‘in-network’ under our health plan beginning 2/1/18.

This past week, Cigna sent letters to CC plan members who may be impacted. If you received one of the letters from Cigna, please take a moment to read it.

If you have any questions, please call Cigna Customer Service at the number on the back of your Cigna card (800-244-6224).

Outdoor Education is excited to announce that we are once again hosting our annual Wilderness Medicine courses during Half Block. Over 85 students are enrolled for the Wilderness First Responder running January 8-17, 2018, and over 25 students are enrolled in the Wilderness First Responder Re-certification course running January 19-21st 2018.

These courses are essential for anyone exploring the great outdoors, and we are thrilled to enable so many students to learn the skills needed to address emergencies in the backcountry.

These courses utilize classroom sessions coupled with mock scenario practice (both indoors and outdoors) to best instill the curriculum. Please note – the mock scenarios are designed to feel as real as possible – requiring students to act as though they are hurt and will display fake blood and injuries. Please do not be alarmed – this is a part of the training.

Course Locations: Classrooms and Adjacent Outside Grassy Spaces
– Slocum Hall
– Loomis Hall
– Palmer Hall

Campus Safety has been informed of our courses.

“Leonard Bernstein at 100” is a Colorado College Music Symposium taking place the first week of block 6 (February 22-24).



An on-campus interview with Jamie Bernstein, presentations by nationally-recognized music scholars, and a concert of seldom-heard Bernstein works are all part of the proceedings.



Registration is required, but free for all those with a CC Gold Card. Just use the discount code “LBCC2018” when completing the online registration.



More information available at http://coloradocollege.edu/bernstein



As one of the most celebrated figures of the twentieth century, Bernstein left his musical mark on the seemingly separate realms of the concert hall, musical theatre, television and film, as well as criticism. In the spirit of Bernstein’s own educational mission, this public musicology conference aims to share academically oriented insights on this popular figure and his output in an accessible and approachable manner.
