Today is the first day of early registration for the spring semester at all five of NTU's locations in Crownpoint, Zuni, Kirtland, Teec Nos Pos and Chinle. It’s important for students to begin registering as soon as possible as it allows our registrar’s office to better plan for course availability. It also helps our business and financial aid offices to begin processing paperwork for Pell disbursements. The sooner students register, the sooner they are able to get the financial aid disbursement.
Navajo Technical University will be working with the Crownpoint Chapter and National Parks Services in hosting focus groups for the development of walking trails in Crownpoint the week of October 21st. We will specifically look to collect feedback of the youth and college students, elders and care takers, and healthcare professionals who utilize the current trails.
Each focus group should last one hour and a smoked brisket dinner will be provided. We only have space for 9 participants in each focus group so please RSVP to Daniel Vandever at email@example.com if you'd like to participate. Please share this information with anyone you feel would provide good insight into trail development in Crownpoint.
For more information, contact me at any time via email or send me a text or voicemail at 505-488-8444.
