A Drive-in-Movie is an iconic American activity that goes back to the roots of American history. With Steamboat Springs being an iconic American destination, drive in movie are a perfect activity for the tourist and local alike. The only problem is the majority of Steamboatonians believe that driving into a movie is out dated and most definitely out of style. Instead, Steamboat residents came up with a better idea: A Bike-in-Movie. Considering Steamboat is also known as “Bike Town USA,” a Bike-in-Movie is more fitting for the culture up here. With a zero impact on the environment, Bike-in-Movies are in, and drive in movies are out. Partnered up with the Tugboat restaurant in Steamboat, this weeks bike in movie was  “The Goonies.”

New Chapter for CMC

September 1, 2011

This past Monday, CMC Alpine campus began a new chapter. For the first time in history,  CMC is now offering two 4 year Bachelor degrees; One in Sustainability and one in Business. With these new degrees, CMC also has a new building underway that is currently being built right now. Despite the tremendous amount of construction going on, the first day of school seemed unaffected by the abundance of detour signs and loud noises around campus. Actually I take that back. The only thing affected by the construction is parking on campus. With 50% parking available, parking on monday was a major pain for commuters. The construction may be a nuisance for parking, but once its done, the new building will bring bigger and better things for Alpine campus in the future. The new building is expected to be fully operational by fall of 2012 and the construction can be seen from any part of the campus. Check out some pictures of the construction!

Since I am enrolled in the 4 year degree in Sustainability, I will be your first resource for any information you may need about the program. Stay tuned, this year is going to be a great one!
