“Acting out” may be the best way to get your message across, and that is what some Front Range college students are doing on the topic of date rape. Students from a Colorado Springs acting troupe in conjunction with the Larimer County Center for Mental Health will perform “Until Someone Wakes Up.”
This series of skits addresses sexual assault, violence and harassment, as well as gender-role socialization, according to Scott Chaplin, director of Stepstone, a sponsor of the performance. The community is welcome at no charge, 8 p.m. March 16 at the New Space Theatre on CMC’s Spring Valley Campus.
An effort to promote health and wellness for Spring Valley CMC students, as well as faculty and staff, is under way. Health coach Dorothy Morgan will seek to light a spark of inspiration for attendees of a free seminar at 4 p.m. March 4 in the mezzanine of the Student Services building.
Learning to achieve peak performance is only the half of it, according to interim assistant coordinator of residence Life Kendra Carpenter. She says, “Everybody knows what they need to make their body, mind and soul happy, but this session is on making it happen.” Morgan will teach how to accomplish the task of bettering your life by teaming up with a friend.
Seeing a need, the Rifle Campus stepped up to offer full-time general education transfer classes during the day this semester … and sure enough, the classes had enough students to take off! The block of classes supplements night classes already offered, but now a student can attend all necessary classes during the day to prepare for transferring to a 4-year school.
The deadline looms for financial aid for the 2004-2005 school year, and the early bird gets the worm. According to CMC financial aid director Gary Lewis, “Students are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Not all money is unlimited. Therefore the earlier you apply, the better chance you have of receiving state and federal grant and college work-study funds.”
The priority deadline for FAFSA applications and national scholarships for CMC students is March 31. That’s the same day you must also have CMC Foundation scholarship applications in. Scholarship applications are available online at http://www.coloradomtn.edu; click on Admissions and Financial Aid to download one, or call Foundation Assistant Carol Brown at (970) 945-8691 for information.
On-site mental health counselor Annie McIntosh says one in three women is sexually assaulted by the time she is 18; and this production about date rape garners great reviews and phenomenal audience response in a livelier format than a lecture.
