The College Council of Riverside (CCOR) is an advisory group of students from the four (CBU, LSU, RCC, UCR) higher education campuses working to promote Riverside as a “university community”.
The mission of CCOR is to encourage a “college” culture within the City through quality off-campus experiences, engaging activities, and connecting students and recent alumni to the region’s workforce through internships and potential jobs.
Some other goals and agenda items for CCOR include:
- Creating a more active student presence in the community through City events
- Surveying students to get a better idea of their wants and needs
- Build on opportunities as knowledge capital, including the creation of a highly skilled workforce and creative community
- Form relationships with business owners to create internships and potential jobs
An example of both building cross campus relationships and connecting students to the community is the upcoming event titled, “The Amazing College Race: Riverside Edition.” This event will take place on Sunday January, 22 from 12:00-3:00pm in Downtown Riverside.
The Amazing College Race will give you and your friends a chance to compete against other Riverside college students in a scavenger hunt around Downtown Riverside for a chance to win a $300 book scholarship for each member of your team. Gather your friends, roommates, study buddies, sorority sister or anyone who’s up for some fun! Pick a cool name, an awesome team leader, and register for only $20.
