Halloween 2015 Photo Gallery!

Halloween is officially over at Green River College (although there is probably still lots of candy at front desks across campus). They day was filled with celebration, humor, friendly competition, and even a Fall Harvest thanks to the CSC Committee.


The best part about Halloween on campus was getting to see coworkers, students, and faculty dressed up in a variety of costumes. Some areas went all out and coordinated a departmental theme for the day.


Below are just some of the images taken of employees across campus. Don’t forget to check out the complete gallery.

Giving From the Heart

Posted on behalf of the Office of Campus Life.

In the past, Green River College has given heart-warming support for our Giving from the Heart program.  We’re asking you to amaze us even more this year!

Giving from the Heart

During these hard economic times, many of our student families will not be able provide a sense of joy to their families without your help. Giving from the Heart is a program that matches sponsors from the Green River community with GRC student families that are in need of gifts, or even food, for their children. The generosity of the sponsors provides a holiday celebration for the family that would not exist if it weren’t for your help.

This program can provide a very fulfilling and rewarding holiday event for offices, departments, academic divisions, Student Clubs & Organizations, neighboring businesses, and community members to participate in together.  This holiday season, instead of enjoying the presence of your friends and families at a holiday dinner or office party; let’s make a difference in the lives of families here on campus that would greatly appreciate your contribution to warm the hearts of their children during the holidays. It would be equally as rewarding to spend this season with one another planning a shopping list, shopping for your sponsored family’s gifts, and wrapping these presents.  You have the potential to make an impact in these young people’s lives this holiday season, and they will not forget it.

The first step is to identify those of you who are willing to commit to sponsoring a family so that we know how many families we can accept into the program.  If you are interested, please gather a group and email Apech@greenriver.edu or contact the Student Life front desk at 253.833.9111 ext. 2400 to sign up as a sponsor by no later than November 2, 2015.  Please provide your preferred family size (i.e. 2 children, 4 children, etc.) so that we know what your group can handle and we will do our best to match you appropriately.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this amazing Green River tradition!
