Building on the Block: Block Break Programming

The Charge: Each student's educational experience is richer when they are surrounded by talented and curious students from different backgrounds, cultures, and places. To recruit the best and brightest students, especially those who would benefit most from a CC education, we will build additional resources for financial aid; and enhance programming to promote a more inclusive and diverse campus.

What's Happening: Campus Activities, along with the Sociology Department and The Butler Center, is leading the effort to provide additional resources for all CC students, by developing free block break programming. The programming provides opportunities for students to participate in a variety of free activities around the region, meeting a need for students who cannot, or do not want to, take a four-day vacation each month at the end of the block. There are many reasons why students choose to stay close to campus on block breaks; students shared that financial limitations and interests other than the outdoors and skiing often left them without many options. "The program allowed me to meet a lot of different students and we went together; I didn't have to go by myself," said Wynter Scott '18, who participated in the programming this year.
