Interested in working with your hands? The Build Team at Innovation at CC will give you a place to create what you’ve always wanted to make. Come build with us! Our first meeting is Monday, Sept. 3rd, 6:30-8:00pm at the Innovation Center (232 Cache)

Members of the team design and build objects or machines — which could be anything! Builders either work on an existing project, come up with their own idea and spearhead its creation, or both at once! We will build using 3D and 2/2.5D design software, laser cutters, 3D printers, Arduino-based electronics, hand and power tools. The team is open to anyone who is interested, especially those with minimal experience!

Got Rave?
With YOUR safety at the top of our mind, Colorado College Campus Safety is launching Guardian, a free mobile app that turns your smartphone into a personal safety device and campus resource center.

By downloading the app on your mobile phone, you’ll have access to safety features that directly connect you to campus safety (or 9-1-1 if off-campus) in an emergency situation, as well as the ability to submit anonymous tips should you see something
suspicious.

You can invite friends and family to join your network as your “Guardians.” You can then request one or more of your Guardians to virtually walk with you on or off campus. It’s like having an emergency blue light system and a trusted friend with you at all times.

The Rave Guardian app features campus resources you need most, including a campus call directory with CC contact information as well as a campus content hub.

On behalf of Colorado College Campus Safety, all students, faculty and staff are encouraged to enhance their personal safety and the safety of their friends by downloading the free app. Simply search “Rave Guardian” in the app store on your mobile device.
The app and additional information is available on the Colorado College Campus Safety webpage under emergency preparedness. www.coloradocollege.edu/dotAsset/f599cbc5-ec8d-4e2f-a0c4-71294ce0183a.pdf

Everyone signed up for Rave Guardian will be entered for a drawing to win a $100 ITunes Gift Card.
