New Student Orientation takes place Aug. 15-23, during which time students also participate in a four-and-a-half-day Priddy Trip, which takes participants to locations throughout the region. This year, a total of 71 groups are heading out on Priddy Trips, CC’s signature orientation experience. First-year and transfer students fan out in small student-led groups across five states – Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas, and Utah, where they engage in a variety of service projects.

To better illustrate where our incoming class is making an impact across the region, college news director Leslie Weddell and director of web and digital media Mark Lee collaborated with Outdoor Education to produce an interactive online map of this year’s Priddy Trips.
