Soaring Above the Rest: Welcome Week 2010

Michael Kelly

Welcome to all freshmen, returning students, and faculty. Fall 2010 Welcome Week has arrived. This week has been planned for your amusement and enjoyment at absolutely no charge!!! Welcome Week is the kick-off event for all students and faculty. Everyday there will be something new and exciting happening on campus.

For all arriving new students, seek out those individuals wearing yellow, All Day Q &A t-shirts for the start of classes, Wednesday – Friday, for any questions you may have.  They will be able to answer your questions all around campus.

On Wednesday, be sure to pick up the first edition of this year’s The Charger Bulletin, and be on look out for the golden ticket to which you could have a chance of winning $50 or $100!
Some of the events happening this week range from, Make your own Aquarium – Bixler/Botwinik Quad to a Flag football tournament on Kayo Field. There are a few unique events this year such as: Duckpin Bowling, K-9 demonstrations, NASCAR, Laundry 101, and the Supermarket Sweep. Don’t forget to sign up for some of the off campus trips during the week as well. See the Welcome Week schedule for dates and times. (www.newhaven.edu/studentlife)

This Welcome Week and its events would not have been possible without the help and dedication of The Welcome Week Committee. A special thanks also goes out to the hard working Director of Student Activities, Greg “Grego” Overend, and the Assistant Director of Student Activities, Lisa Saverese, along with representatives from Residential Life, Athletics, the Dean of Students’ Office, Student Activities, and The Charger Bulletin.

Enjoy and have a great time during Welcome Week 2010 and good luck throughout the Fall Semester.
