CR Community Open House
College of the Redwoods Eureka main campus will host a community open house on Saturday, Nov. 2 to showcase its four brand-new buildings opened in the last year.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. followed by free admission to a CR football game vs. Los Medanos College, beginning at 1 p.m. in Community Stadium.
"This day provides an excellent opportunity for the community to see the 'new' College of the Redwoods," said CR President Kathy Smith. "In addition to these new buildings, CR has many positive things going on including our excellent educational programs, new student success initiatives, improved accreditation and budget statuses. We also have new vendors running our bookstore and dining services. We want to offer local residents a chance to see what is happening with their community college."
The day will include guided tours of the $29.5 million Science and Humanities buildings in the center of campus, as well as the $19.3 million Student Services/Administration and Performing Arts Theater. Instructors will be present in the state-of -the art science labs and academic classrooms, each outfitted with the latest in SMART Board technology. One can also meet CR faculty in career technical facilities, such as welding, construction technology, drafting technology, manufacturing technology and registered nursing.
Academy of the Redwoods, the early college high school located on the CR Eureka Campus, will also be open for tours.
Information tables for CR's programs will be set up in the courtyard between the two academic buildings.
A special ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by refreshments, will also take place there at noon with CR President Kathy Smith, CR Trustees and other dignitaries. Music will be provided by the CR Concert Band.
