Eagle Rock’s trimester shuffle is well underway, with our latest graduates receiving their diplomas last Friday along with the official end of ER 66, which put to bed our 66th trimester since Eagle Rock’s founding back in 1993.
If you missed our most recent graduates on stage, you can still see all the action — in living color — online via the Eagle Rock channel on Ustream (the ER 66 graduation ceremony can found in the right hand column).
But officially, as of today, we’re on break. Unofficially, there’s a lot of work still going on at our mountainside campus in Estes Park, with tomorrow being the final day on campus for our 2014/15 Public Allies Fellows, and preparations well underway for the arrival of the 2015/16 Public Allies Fellows for a week’s worth of training toward the end of the month.
For those faculty and staff taking a much deserved break, what we hope is that this well-rested cohort returns to campus here in Estes Park on Monday, Sept. 7 fired up and ready for ER 67. A week later — on Sunday, Sept. 13 — our veteran students arrive on campus, with house retreats scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 15 through Thursday, Sept. 17.
One of our two-day EagleServe events takes place on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 17 and 18, with students and staff meeting up with members of the community to plan, create and then implement various projects that serve the Eagle Rock community, as well as the nearby community of Estes Park and the greater Estes Valley.
New students — the incoming class of ER 67 — arrive on Saturday, Sept. 19, and classes begin on Monday, Sept. 21.
During this trimester break, you might find yourself with an important question or an issue that you believe requires somebody’s immediate attention. Your best bet is to send the staff member or instructor you’re trying to reach an email (many — not all — check email during break). You can also find answers to the most frequently asked questions about Eagle Rock online via our new website.
