UPDATE - FRIDAY, APRIL 4 (4:30 p.m.) - Due to overcast skies, tonight's Astronomy Star Party may be moved inside to Room M3740 (third floor in the main building).  Please check for signs at the West Entrance if you do not see Astronomy Professor Jennifer Jones and the ACC telescopes out on the West Lawn upon your arrival to campus.

The Arapahoe Community College Astronomy Program will host "star parties" to observe the night sky on Feb. 21, March 7 and April 4 at the Littleton Campus (outside on the West Lawn; between the main building and lot G).

All three star parties will be held in an open house format from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. (please dress appropriately for these outdoor events), and attendees are welcome to arrive at their convenience.  ACC will provide a telescope at all three star parties, which are free and open to the public (no RSVP necessary).

Additionally, FREE hot cocoa and cookies will be served.

Join ACC Astronomy Professor Jennifer Jones at these star parties for your chance to observe the celestial bodies and explore the vastness of the universe.  For more information, please contact Jennifer at jennifer.jones@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5839.

Astronomy Star Parties


Arapahoe Community College will once again serve as a location for the Tax Help Colorado program in 2014, as announced by The Piton Foundation and the Colorado Community College System (CCCS).

The Piton FoundationTax Help Colorado, which is a partnership between The Piton Foundation and the CCCS, provides Colorado families with the opportunity to have their tax return prepared and e-filed by IRS-certified college students.  These services are free to Colorado taxpayers whose annual household income was less than $50,000 in 2013.

ACC will facilitate Tax Help Colorado at its Littleton Campus (5900 S. Santa Fe Drive) each Friday from Jan. 31 - Mar. 14 in Room A1540 (first floor of the Annex Building) from Noon – 3:00 p.m.  IRS-certified ACC students will prepare and e-file these tax returns.  No appointment necessary.  WHAT TO BRING TO A PARTICIPATING TAX HELP COLORADO SITE

Furthermore, for Colorado families who make less than $50,000 and have children at home, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit can reduce the amount of income tax paid and may even mean a much bigger tax refund – as much as $5,000 more.  Additionally, there are tax credits that can help to pay for college.

This is the third straight year that ACC has worked in conjunction with The Piton Foundation to support the Tax Help Colorado program.  The ACC site facilitated 193 combined returns for a grand total of $347,781 in refunds (includes State, Federal and EITC) during the 2013 tax season.
