According to the Colorado College student newspaper The Catalyst, the student government has agreed to a resolution to bridge the growing divide between the townsfolk and the college.
Tensions were exacerbated when the college broke ground on a new on-campus ice arena which halved the capacity of the old city Broadmoor World Arena arena – leaving locals, literally, out in the cold.
“Let it be resolved that local residents no longer be called cutters, townies, Cretans, or unwashed masses.” said the unanimously approved resolution.
The approved document went on to propose several events to get Colorado Springs locals on campus.
One seminar entitled, “look mom, no hands” involves a class in how to properly use silverware, get place settings right every time and the use and placement of the most misunderstood utensil – the salad fork.”
A lunch-and-learn event called, “We are in this together!” will target local blue-collar workers. The course description reads, “A CC education may be beyond your reach but even ‘the trades’ can benefit from reiki massage, Pilates and kettlebell.”
The students are firming up final details to coincide with new arena construction.
