First-year students welcomed to campus

New school, new people and a first try at adulthood. Welcome week is where it all starts and some great memories are formed.

“I think I’m most excited for Rock the Block— it’s all anyone talks about,” said Gabriela Trujillo, first-year student. Rock the Block, held in the Sutter Hall courtyard, features live music, inflatables, food, games and more.

“Getting to know all the new residents and being able to introduce them to all the exciting events has to be the best part,” said Cecelia Brissenden, resident adviser.

Other upcoming events include a midnight pancake breakfast, hypnotist show and live concert.

A full list of upcoming welcome week events can be found at:
