Cowley shows off campus during school’s Open
Individuals that took part in Cowley College’s Open House on its main campus in Arkansas City on April 6, had a chance to see behind the scenes places at the college, such as backstage of the Robert Brown Theatre, or the locker rooms inside W.S. Scott Auditorium.
Tours were given to 13 different college buildings, including the Oscar Kimmell Dormitory. Sue Saia, vice president of student affairs, helped organize the event.
“It took a collective effort by the employees at the college to pull it off,” Saia said. “We accomplished our purpose of offering the community an opportunity to see what we have on campus. It was a beneficial and educational experience.”
Cowley College Student Ambassadors helped conduct tours of the campus, while cheerleaders were stationed at the entrances to each building on the tour.
“Exposing the community to our students was a good experience as well,” Saia said.
The evening concluded with prize drawings for those individuals that took part in the tour of the campus. Karen Bacastow was the grand prize winner in the drawing for two tickets to the Winfield Country Roundup.
Buildings on the tour were: the Brown Center, Webb Brown Building, Renn Memorial Library, Patrick J. McAtee Dining Center, Walker Technology Building, Kimmell Dormitory, Nelson Student Center, Galle-Johnson Hall, Kerr Technology Building, Ireland Hall, W.S. Scott Auditorium, Ben Cleveland Wellness Center, and the Sid Regnier Bookstore.
