CTU Grand Opening Friday, June 1-2

by Cynthia Calongne

Greetings from Lyr Lobo! *grins*

Colorado Technical University is proud to invite you to Bonfire, our Second Life grand opening party June 1st-2nd (Friday noon - Saturday noon SL Time) featuring 24 hours of live music and celebration. Many thanks to the New Media Consortium's (NMC's) Virtual Worlds team who designed Colorado Technical University's Second Life campus.

Several of my student projects from our computer science classes, including the Amusement Park and the Maze Game Traps, will be out on the Boardwalk for you to enjoy. I presented them at the Best Practices in Education in Second Life conference May 25th. As you review these projects, think back to your first days in SL and what you were building. *smiles* I wasn't making Amusement Park Rides or a Duck Shoot during my first week or two in SL and I am very proud of my students' accomplishments. *grins*

Everyone is invited to Bonfire and we hope to see you! *cheers* The party lasts 24 hours, so drop by at a time that is convenient for you. The island name, if searching by map, is Colorado Tech. Click the following link to bring up the location within Second Life.

This event is hosted by a variety of talented folks and sponsors, including Flameheart Sol and Konny Kembla. Many thanks to our organizers! Here is the official announcement, also available in the Events/Live Music section of Second Life's Search menu.

The House of Flames is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of The Second Life Campus of Colorado Technical University by hosting BONFIRE 2007, twenty-four hours of live music, sponsored in part by Thomson NETg, Kent-Havercamp Enterprises, and Slipstream Audio. Come visit this new campus, professionally designed by the New Media Consortium, and also a home to the Academy of Second Learning. The music will start at noon on Friday, June 1 and will rock the island until noon on Saturday. Come and see the most awaited music festival in Second Life!
