Orientation Step 2: Oredigger Camp
Mines regrets to inform you that due to COVID-19 and related issues with the site location and Colorado state guidelines, we will be unable to hold Oredigger Camp in person for summer 2020. In its place, we will be offering a virtual Oredigger Camp around the same time in August. While we are still planning this event, we know that it will include both large and small group activities and opportunities for you to connect with other new and current Orediggers. Registration and more information about this event are forthcoming. Everyone at Mines is hard at work preparing for the safe return of students to campus in the fall, and we can’t wait to meet you in person in a few months. In the meantime, we look forward to interacting in other ways. For more information about our COVID-19 response and resources, please check out mines.edu/coronavirus.
