It was cold outside, but that didn’t stop hundreds of students and staff and vendors from making their way to Washtenaw Community College’s 14th annual Winter Welcome Day recently.

Held on the first and second floors in the Student Center, the day’s festivities drew in approximately 65 WCC clubs and academic departments. Local businesses, such as Ypsi Real, Zap-Zone and Marco’s Pizza, among many others, were also present.

Student attendees learned about available programs and services at the college, including the WCC Student Resource Center, the Health and Fitness Center across the street from campus on Huron River Drive, the WCC Sustainability Council, and WCC’s Counseling & Career Planning department. Airbrushed tattoos and wax hand molds were available for the fun side of the event.

“It was great to see so many students stop by the many tables hosted by community groups and WCC departments and organizations,” said Student Activities Coordinator Rachel Barsch. “We’re thankful to the many organizations that hosted a table and informed students about the many resources available to them. Welcome Day is a great way for students to make connections and learn more about what’s happening on campus. We’re already looking forward to fall’s Welcome Day.”

The next Welcome Day event is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 14. For more information, contact Rachel Barsch at 734-973-3681.
