NC Spirit Week


Week 8 is Spirit Week.

Every semester on the North Campus, Week 8 involves themed days, fun activities, tips on student health and well-being, and special spirit week contests.

What started out as Mental Health & Wellness Week over the years evolved to Spirit Week in the Fall 2019 semester. To reach new heights with this semesterly recurring event, we are now developing a new identity that reflects its evolution. You can look forward to our rebranding coming Summer 2020!

What is Spirit Week?

During spirit week, students celebrate school pride by participating in themed days and competing in special spirit week contests. Spirit week is full of activities that are fun and also help students get to know Columbia College better. It gets students involved, working cooperatively and united on a common goal of promoting school spirit. It’s also a great opportunity to recognize our athletic teams and clubs, kick off a fundraiser or charity event, and start special student projects.
