Johnson Day is  a time to thank PPD for all of its hard work and for Colby students to give back to their Colby community.  On October 15th, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, Colby students will be working with PPD staff members to help beautify the campus through a variety of activities.  Colby students participated in Johnson Day from 1952 to 1964, and the CVC looks forward to continuing this tradition, which was revived this past spring.

Welcome back to the hill! All of the CVC Staffers have been working hard all week to get the office back in order. We’ve had some really productive meetings with community members. For example, Amanda and I met with Nancy Long at the South End Teen Center on Wednesday. She is really excited to get some great events for the kids there this semester and we are ready to support her.

We also presented to all the first-year students before they went out on their C2IT day. Our goal was for them to leave the presentation excited about civic engagement and ready to not only serve their new community that day with their COOT groups, but also throughout the rest of their Colby career.

We will be at the Campus Expo on September 13th and will be hosting our Info Session on the 15th. Please check back for more information soon! We can’t wait to start the year off strong.

– Dana, Director of the CVC
