Calling All Future Rams! Here’s a Construction Management Open House for YOU

Greetings from the Department of Construction Management at Colorado State University!

We are reaching out to high school counselors across Colorado to provide information about the Construction Management program at Colorado State University.  We often hear that students are not aware of Construction Management as a major, and we know that as a high school counselor many students talk with you as they begin their major and career exploration.  We would like to help by introducing our program to you and invite your students to our upcoming Open House.

  • Explore CM! Open House:  Are you…

o   Interested in a major with high job placement and competitive salaries?

o   Fascinated by seeing projects come together?

o   Enthusiastic about working in dynamic teams?

Interested in Traveling Abroad?

Longmont Sister Cities Association (LSCA) is looking for adults to chaperon eight students during the exchange next summer. We are also looking for interested students who would like to travel to Japan or Mexico for 10 days. Delegations from both countries come back to Longmont with their host brother or sister. Our guests stay 10 days as well. Students in grades 8 to 11 are eligible to participate.
Our exchange program allows the students to grow in confidence, see the world, and represent Longmont as an ambassador. The chaperons and students meet once a month during the school year, and during the summer time once a week for approximately one hour to learn about the country to which they will travel. This includes topics such as the culture, language, foods, do’s and don’ts, packing essentials, photography, etc.. These meetings help prepare them for the trip which takes place at the end of July and beginning of August.
LSCA will pay for the cost of the trip for the selected chaperons, and the students raise the funds for their airline tickets. The in-country costs are minimal, since they stay with the host families. There are some scholarships available to low income families similar to St. Vrain reduced lunch program. The LSCA website provides more information about the exchange program. There are also application forms for interested adults and students on our website. The applications are due by October 31st.
The website is   http://www.LongmontSisterCities.com
There is an article about LSCA on this issue of Inside Longmont magazine, which also expands some of the process and some pictures of this summers activities.   http://www.insidelongmontthemagazine.com/issues/
Thanks again for your interest and I am looking forward to meeting teachers and interested students from Skyline.
Sam Seyfi, President LSCA
