CLARKSDALE – Sounds from the band practicing, football players on the field conditioning for the new season that begins Sept.1, and the hustle and bustle to and from classes — that’s right, “you are officially a Tiger!”
And, on that note, the Division of Enrollment and Student Services has an entire week of exciting activities planned to welcome new and returning students back to campus.
Welcome Week is designed to provide opportunities for students to meet new people and it includes events and activities from Monday, Aug. 22, through the remainder of the school week.
“Our Welcome Week events are designed to give students an opportunity to interact with each other and also with the faculty and staff here at Coahoma,” said Student Activities Coordinator Chris Dixon. “They can meet and talk with the staff and the instructors up close and personal in a relaxed atmosphere and get a feel of what they can expect from the upcoming semester.”
The fun begins Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Georgia Lewis Theater with Tigers enjoying a newly released movie and free concessions.
Tuesday, Tigers will have the opportunity to cool off between classes and learn more about what the Division of Enrollment and Student Services has to offer during an Ice Cream Social, hosted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of the Wellness Center (located in between Friends Hall and the Student Union). Later that night, Tigers will enjoy a “Rock the Block” block party at 8 p.m. in the Courtyard.
Wednesday, students will enjoy an early start to the most important meal of the day during a “Late Night Breakfast Club” at 10:30 p.m. in the Student Cafeteria. In addition to an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, Tigers will enjoy bring in a new day with fellowship, music, dancing, an eating contest and more!
Thursday, the fun continues with Game Night from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Zee A. Barron Student Union. The Xbox and Wii will be setup for some friendly competition, and Tigers will have access to the Game Room to enjoy ping pong, pool, cards and many other board games and activities.
The week will wrap up Friday with “The Big Band Dodgeball Challenge” at 7:30 p.m. in the Reid Gym, also known as the “Hot Box”.
“We hope that these events will help our students blow off a little steam as the freshmen adjust, and our sophomores readjust, to being back on campus,” said Dixon.
All events are only open to present CCC students who must present a current CCC ID to attend.
