LCSC hosted its official welcome to campus during the first couple weeks of class to greet new and returning students.

The Week of Welcome boasted many activites, including its 25th annual Welcome Fair

This college-sponsored event Aug. 21 was designed to welcome back the thousands of LCSC students.

Many vendors came together for this event. These vendors consisted of businesses and organizations from around the Valley and different clubs and groups from LCSC.

This event is an annual campus tradition for many students and faculty at LCSC.

Third-year English – Secondary Education major Blaze Dugger said, “It’s great to see this community come together each year to welcome people looking to further their education.”

Holly Daugherty, the coordinator of student involvement at LCSC, gave her insight on the Week of Welcome activities that her office helped in planning along with other campus departments. These events included a barbecue, swing dancing, hydration stations and community service.

“Overall the events went extremely well. A lot of what we tried was new and maybe a bit different, but I think from the students who came to the events and their reactions, I think we have set a good foundation to be able to build upon.”

Specifically,“the movie on the lawn that Residence Life hosted was popular, and I hope to continue to collaborate with them to make the event a continued tradition. The hydration stations were also extremely popular. In total we saw about 200 students over the five days.”

Daugherty hopes to continue to collaborate with other departments and groups on campus to create new activities, events and traditions.

In the future, students can look forward to multicultural week starting Sept. 16.

Other events coming up include a variety of shows going on at the Silverthorne Theatre and Homecoming (Sept. 30 – Oct. 5). Homecoming will include many activities like a fight song competition, bed races and a student vs. staff and faculty kickball game.

If students are interested and or curious about involvement opportunities, they can visit Daugherty in SUB/CSL 208.
