    On Friday, October 27, 2017, Fountain-Fort Carson High School Native American/Native Alaskan students visited the University of Northern Colorado (UNC).  The purpose of the visit was to expose students to the native culture and to discover what opportunities UNC can offer.  During the visit, students visited the American Indian Center.  They were also treated to a lunch that was provided by the university and participated in a tour of the campus.

     Native American and Alaskan students visited UNC
