Welcome Week at Lorain County Community College has brought some excitement to campus with
many different events on Campus. The Student Senate hosted a water flip challenge, a make-your-own hot chocolate bar and henna tattoos, a bagel bar and giant games of Connect 4 and Jenga.
“Turnout was actually pretty good, peak times were around the lunch hour,” said Student Senate President, Alex Moen.
The Student Senate plans a portion of Welcome Week events and assists Student Life with the rest. “The clubs are responsible for doing their own thing,” said Elexis Hamby, executive secretary of the Student Senate.
“The purpose is to get students to come here and once they experience some fun then we’ll show them other aspects of the college,” said Hamby.
“Welcome Week is supposed to show students at LCCC all of the things they could be involved in,” said Moen.
“We were well under budget because we were able to cut the cost making our own games,” said Moen on the Senate’s giant games of Connect 4 and Jenga.
The Student Senate also sent breakfast pastries to the other LCCC branches. “We want all of the students at the other learning centers to feel like they’re a part of the community and be included in Welcome Week,” explained Learning Center Representative, Jonathan Pataoli.
“I think it’s overall been a very successful Welcome Week,” said Moen.
