12th Annual Adams State University Autumn@Adams
September 14th through September 19th, 2015
For many years, Adams State has organized events revolving around a select theme and choosing a week in September to host these educational and entertaining events.
The theme for 2015 will be announced soon.
Themes from past years include:
- 2014 Great Expression
- 2013 Health, Fitness, and Beyond
- 2012 The American Dream: Yours, Mine, and Ours;
- 2011 Honor Your Story-Discover Your Possibilities;
- 2010 Everyone Has a Story to Tell;
- 2009 Transformations Begin Here;
- 2008 Our Earth-Our Valley;
- 2007 Understanding Peace;
- 2006 Roots Remembered.
The first two years, 2005 and 2004, themes were not developed for Autumn@Adams.
For the past few years, Autumn@Adams Week has included a Last Lecture event, an opportunity for a popular professor or administrator to speak to students as if it where their last time in front of a classroom; community or campus professionals have entertained and educated audiences about their expertise - which corresponds to the theme; and in 2014 the Autumn Colors Fun 5K attracted 200 to run through color along the course.
Beginning in 2008, Autumn@Adams Week includes the popular Cook-Off.
