Staying cool for back to school

The Office of Student Engagement and Retention’s back-to-school kickoff was designed to keep students full and cool and help relieve the stress of returning to classes.

From pizza and donuts to cold drinks and water games, Welcome Week offered a wide range of activities to keep students engaged for the first week of the new semester.
