The Associated Students of Skyline College (ASSC) welcomed new and returning students, staff, faculty and community members during the annual Welcome Week celebration held from August 15 to August 23, 2018.
On the first and second day of school, ASSC officers handed out fresh donuts and coffee on the Quad and provided students information on class locations, community resources and getting involved on campus. A similar activity for the benefit of evening students was held on August 21.
Around 24 college programs and different student groups participated in the Program Services & Clubs Fair on August 22 at the Quad to provide students with resources to increase engagement.
Welcome Week closed with the Annual Pancake Breakfast on August 23. Staff, faculty and student volunteers served over 700 students a free breakfast courtesy of the ASSC.
The ASSC Governing Council will continue to promote student engagement, equity and social justice through programming, committee participation and student advocacy.
Leadership opportunities are available for students; students may apply for a position with the ASSC or gain membership in a student club. Faculty, staff and administration assistance in encouraging student participation is appreciated. A word of encouragement goes a long way in motivating students to engage and feel connected to the campus community.
The ASSC looks forward to working with the campus community and making this another successful academic year. Thank you.
