Meet Your Community Night 2018
August 23, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Meet Your Community Night is on Thursday, August 23. Remember the crowds of new students who flooded local businesses last year? Well, it’s that time of year again.
Cornell College is planning another great class of students this year with over 300 first year and new transfer students. These new students will be looking for ways to connect with Mt. Vernon and Lisbon. New students will be arriving on Wednesday, August 22, so they will have plenty of time to explore Mt. Vernon and Lisbon before classes start on Monday, August 27.
This year CDG has worked with Cornell College to make some changes to this evening that will allow the students to meet the time restrictions while visiting with the business community. This year the students will be participating in ‘Minute To Win It’ games in Memorial Park from 5:30-6:30. At 6:00 they are able to leave the park (in their groups) and do a self-guided tour of the First Street area. The CDG will have “Block Captains” to assist with questions on the self-guided tours.
