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.
