Welcome Week

by Michelle Fultz

The Valley Forge

From free doughnuts to Frisbees, Welcome Week proved to be another great success for the Student Commission. They hosted the week's activities and freebies on the second floor of the Student Center from August 31st through September 4th.

Throughout the entire week students could be heard in the Main Dining Room enjoying the festivities. Just outside, many other RVC students were signing up and meeting with representatives of the campus' many clubs and organizations. Welcome Week serves as not only a time for new students to feel at home, but also for returning students of RVC to be reacquainted with the campus.

The week began on Monday, August 31st with a very peculiar opening. The event started at 11:00 AM, with select students being hypnotized by the talented Jim Wand, while the rest of the audience enjoyed their free hot dogs.

The following Tuesday and Wednesday were also filled with free snacks and toys. Many students and a few faculty members took a very special liking to the free slinkys and Frisbees provided by the Student Commission.

On Thursday, September 3rd, the "Real Deal Crazy Game Show" took place in the Main Dining Room. It is a cross between "Let's Make a Deal," and "Truth or Consequences." Many students had a lot of fun, and won really great prizes! Walking Tacos were provided for campus-goers throughout the lunch hour.

Friday ended a little on the chilly side. There were free snow cones for everyone! It was definitely a refreshing end to a very hot week.

For those of you who missed out on any of the week's activities, and would like more information about clubs and future events, the Student Commission office is located on the ground floor of the Student Center.

The t-shirts feature Reggie Reagle on the front, and the back has a list of the top ten lies heard at RVC . Grab yours early, because these shirts have proven very popular on campus. They include sayings like: "Go ahead pet the geese, they're friendly!" and "I'm only going here for 2 years."
