RE: Campus Report for the November 16-17, 2000 Board of Regents’ Meeting
· The first of three annual View Days was conducted on Friday, October 20. View Days bring prospective students to campus and allow them to visit classes, talk with advisors, obtain a comprehensive overview of DCC programs and services, and to tour the campus.
· Don Kettner, DCC President Emeritus, was appointed by Governor Racicot to the Montana Commission on Community Service. This 15-member commission administers $3.5 million for such programs as the College Campus Compact, Ameri-Corps, the National Senior Citizens Corps, and the Learn & Service America Corps.
· The 2nd Annual Student/Staff Softball Game and Barbecue was held on Friday, October 13th. The staff held off a serious onslaught by the students in the closing innings to secure the win. This annual activity helps create and promote a strong social connection between students and staff – a hallmark characteristic of DCC.
· On October 12, the Montana Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) met on campus.
· The Drama and Music students conducted a coffee tasting and chamber concert in late October. A multitude of coffees and desserts were sampled accompanied by performances of the chorus, instrumental artists, comics, and servers.
· Law Enforcement students cooperated with the Glendive Police Department in hosting a Halloween Party for area children at the Student Center.
· A series of culinary workshops, taught at the Dawson County High School Home Economics classroom, were initiated this fall as part of DCC’s Community Service Program.
