What to Bring
New Student/Winter Start Orientation Priddy Experience Packing List
*Please note that for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 Priddy Experience the traditional packing lists will not be needed*
This year, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Priddy Trip experience will be a little different but rest assured that we will still be providing and facilitating a fun, experiential, small group experience that enables you to connect to CC, meet other incoming students and begin to develop friendships while learning about life at CC and how you can be successful here.
Outdoor Education’s primary goal is to create a welcoming, inclusive, and safe environment. In order to do that effectively this year, we have decided to move all of our traditional off campus trips to an on campus experience. Our goal is to replicate the off campus environment and experience by placing you in small groups, having Priddy Trip Student Leaders, and participate in community engagement and sense of place and cultural day activities more locally within and around Colorado Springs. By staying on campus and staying local, we will be able to adhere to any and all social distancing requirements while creating a fun, safe, and welcoming experience similar to our traditional off campus priddy trips.
Arriving to Colorado Springs in the winter months means it will be cold and snowy! Be prepared to bring proper winter clothing including; warm layers, winter jacket, warm hats, gloves, warm footwear, etc.
*With our new program structure this year you won't need to bring anything specific or special for the Priddy Experience this year. Once you are on campus your Priddy Experience Leaders will help you prepare for any of the day trip opportunities! It will be important to plan for cold and potentially snowy conditions in Colorado Springs so make sure to bring proper winter clothing options with you to campus! Hiking boots or winter boots are also a great idea to have with you for Priddy Day trips as well as regular life at CC!
