CLARKSDALE – The best way to experience what it means to be a part of Tiger Nation is to get involved in campus activities right away, and Coahoma Community College’s Fall 2014 Welcome Week is giving students the opportunity to do just that!

Welcome week, hosted by CCC’s Division of Student Affairs, is designed to provide opportunities for students to make new and lifelong friends to share their college experience with. It includes events and activities starting from the first day of class and continuing throughout the remainder of the week. 

According to CCC’s Director of Enrollment and Student Services Karen Done, the events are all apart of the Division of Student Affairs’ goal to work in conjunction with the other Divisions on campus to prepare students academically, socially and culturally.

“Membership in Tiger Nation has its privileges! We have prepared several ‘big, first class and fun’ activities for our students with only a CCC ID required for admission,” said Done. “We encourage all of our students to participate and hope to attract those who are not yet registered to join the Tiger Nation and experience all it has it offer.”

Tuesday students will come together in the Georgia Lewis Theater at 7 p.m. for movie night. Popcorn and drinks will be available. 

Wednesday’s activities will give students the opportunity to cool down and meet new people during an Ice Cream Social from 11 am. until 1 p.m. in CCC’s Wellness Center. Later that evening, Game Night will be hosted from 7-9 p.m. in the Zee A. Barron Student Union.

Thursday, the week will wrap up with a live concert by Rick Ross, a Grammy nominated rapper who hails from Coahoma County, at 8 p.m. in the Pinnacle.

Due to inclement weather, a Block Party initially scheduled for Monday night has been postponed until further notice.

All events are only open to present CCC students who must present a current CCC ID to attend.
