Greeley West and Greeley Central students don’t team up for much – especially at this time of the year.  But last Friday, September 20, the rival schools teamed up for a bus ride to the University of Denver.

Once the 42 students from both schools got there, they took separate tours of the campus and sat through presentations about applying to the school.  The presentation was about the application to DU and how much financial aid students can get from that school.   The goal was to sell the University of Denver to the students, but also to just talk about college in general and help them in the decision-making process.

The students were treated to a free lunch during their two-hour campus visit.  Clam chowder was even on the menu.  “It was some of the best food I’ve ever had on a college campus.  They had a really good salmon plate,” senior Ashley Cullen said.

One of the entertaining aspects of the field trip happened during the tour of the dormitories.  DU has an open-door policy, meaning that dorm rooms are only closed during specific hours.  While on the tour, the West students happened upon a room of college students smoking.  “It was crazy… the tour guide told us to turn the other way, but we noticed the students trying to hide it anyway,” senior Grace Chahal said.

Students spent over three hours in traffic on the way to and from Denver and were late getting back to school, resulting in students missing their buses home.  It also cut short part of the tour.  “It was the shortest field trip ever,”  Chahal said. “We didn’t do much.”
