Sign up for aerial silks acrobats this Sunday, 11/4 from 1:15pm-2:15pm. It is a beginner course and requires no previous experience or specific skills. If you have no upper body strength and are deathly afraid of heights this is still the class for you – there are plenty of fun tricks you can learn without climbing high into the air. You must sign up on Summit to attend the class, which will meet at the Ritt Kellogg Climbing Gym (in the basement of El Pomar). You should wear clothes you are able to move and stretch easily in! Leggings and a sleeved shirt (no tank tops) are best. You will also be barefoot. If the class is full, please add yourself to the waitlist!

What are the Digital Liberal Arts (DLA) and what faculty, staff and student collaborations have been fostered in recent years under this initiative? Come to the Block 3 Faculty Research Luncheon to learn about ongoing projects and possibilities for the future.

Our presentation will showcase a few DLA projects and the digital tools used to build them and discussion about some of the ways DLA tools are used in the classroom at CC. You can see some of the projects highlighted on the DLA @ CC website here: sites.coloradocollege.edu/dlaatcc
