On April 6, 2015, Platt College officially opened its brand new library services. The space was created as a result of the College's strategic planning survey in which students commented that their biggest wish was for additional quiet study space. As a result of the committee's work, the new library space opened March 30, 2015 with the start of the new quarter. The new space features 4 new study areas, including 3 conference areas for students. Pictured cutting the ribbon to mark the grand opening is head librarian Laura Cullerton and library assistant Laura Amann. Both Cullerton and Amann hold master's degrees in library information science. Also pictured is Cullerton's husband, who joined in the celebration.

Nursing students from the School of Nursing at Platt College take the Nightingale Pledge at their recent graduation/pinning ceremony at a hotel near Denver.
The Nightingale Pledge was once taken by all new professional nurses upon first entering the nursing profession. It was named after the famous nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, who was a championed English nurse. Nightingale laid the foundations of modern nursing with her nursing school at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London (now part of King’s College in London).
