More things to do at Lake Tahoe Community College in the works

A possible expansion of activities to lure people to Lake Tahoe Community College will be made to enhance the student and campus lifestyles.

In a report given to the board of trustees Tuesday, Susan Middleton, dean of student services, reported the growing number of clubs at the school and offering of events to the public.

“What I told the board is I think we feel good on what we’re offering (but) I think there’s lots of room for this area to expand,” she said.

The college has experienced success with showings of movies that never appeared or were late at the lone movie theater in South Shore.

Movies such as “Bowling for Columbine,” “Lost in Translation” and “The Fog of War” were big hits among people searching for films out of the mainstream. Demand for “Lost in Translation” forced the college to have another showing.

While Middleton said the college probably won’t expand its supply of movies, it might expand its weekend activities selection. She pointed to the Lake Tahoe Adventure Club’s gear swap earlier this month as an event she would like to see more of.

“(We want) students, when they think of what to do this weekend, to automatically think of what’s going on at the college,” she said.
