The Impact of Giving

Supporting a cause you believe in — with money or time — can arise from many different places and take many different forms. For 13 CC young alumni, it’s through a giving circle called Mitzvoters where $50 each a month and the time it takes to research potential recipients makes a big difference in the lives of individuals around them (story below). For Ed Robson ’54, it was a long-time love of hockey as well as an appreciation for CC’s academic rigor, that spurred him to donate $12 million to CC to build a new, on-campus arena, which is scheduled to break ground in February (see plans on pgs. 26-27).…

That’s So CC: ‘We’re Opening Wooglin’s Two First’

Wooglin’s Deli & Café is closing its Tejon Street location temporarily during construction of Robson Arena, but plans to have a prominent spot next to the new arena when it is completed. That doesn’t mean Wooglin’s will be entirely shuttered during the construction phase. Wooglin’s manager Todd Renz is opening a second location in northeast Colorado Springs, which he plans to continue after the arena is operational. In CC-esque fashion, Renz observes, “We’re opening Wooglin’s Two first.” The popular deli and café has been a fixture at 823 N. Tejon St. for nearly 30 years.

Good to the Last Drop: CC Earns Top Spot for Water Conservation

From rain gardens to educational water courses to a live green roof, CC’s efforts to conserve water are being noticed. In the latest AASHE Sustainable Campus Index, CC is a top performer in the water category out of approximately 280 other U.S. colleges and universities. CC posted a 47% reduction in total water use of vegetated grounds since 2008, the college’s baseline year. “Nowhere in the United States is water a more critical issue than in the West, and we’ve taken that issue very seriously at Colorado College,” says Director of Sustainability Ian Johnson. “Water is both a scarce resource and also a major expense. It’s also a cultural issue…

Sustainability News: No Car? No Problem

The Office of Sustainability is partnering with PikeRide to give eligible students free access to the bike-sharing service. PikeRide bikes typically cost $1 to unlock and $0.10 per minute to ride, but the fee is waived for CC students with demonstrated financial need. Other students, faculty, and staff get a discounted rate of $99 to ride up to 80 minutes every day for the entire academic year. For Mae Rohrbach, paraprofessional in the Office of Sustainability, the benefits of this partnership are threefold: It ensures that students, staff, and faculty have access to alternative transportation; it encourages the use of a more sustainable form of transportation that does not release…

New Signs Designate Tava Quad

The newly named Tava Quad, previously informally known as Armstrong Quad, was blessed at a sunrise ceremony during Homecoming Weekend. More than 40 members of the Ute Tribes participated in ceremonies and festivities that included the sacred blessing, meeting with students in two convergence classes, and a cultural performance that included powwow dancing and a drumming exhibition. Informational signs relaying the history of the area and the Nuúchi (Ute) People, the first inhabitants of the region, are located at the four cardinal entry points to Tava Quad, the largest greenspace on campus. “Tava” means “sun” in the Ute language, and they called the majestic peak that towers over Colorado Springs…

RMPBS Move to Campus Expands Opportunities

Rocky Mountain PBS has moved its Colorado Springs operations from downtown to the CC campus in order to expand its local programming and educational initiatives.
