Students Start Year With Food, Games and Grooves
Sep. 4, 2012
Welcome Week was packed with activities every day of the week, from the ceremonial convocation to the groovin’ Silent Disco to a zany flash mob under the trellis. The events were designed to welcome new freshmen and transfer students, but it was also just a good time with lots of free food for the whole campus.
The week that takes months of planning and preparation came off beautifully under sunny skies as the cosmos was kind to its Comets. Whoosh!
