There, Westminster Mayor Joe Dominick, College President Roger Casey, Greg Brock of Atlas Premier Realty, library Branch Manager Christina Kuntz, and Tiombe Paige, owner of Cultivated.

The event is in its second year.

Associate Dean of Campus and Community Engagement Josh Ambrose said the idea is to make the students feel comfortable downtown and to strengthen the engagement both ways between city and college.
