Students enjoy annual Welcome Week events

Welcome Week 2019 SJC Glocade
Students enjoyed GloCade during the first week of fall 2019 classes at San Jacinto College.

The fall 2019 semester began with a variety of Welcome Week events for students at the San Jacinto College Central, North, and South Campuses.

Beginning on Aug. 26, students enjoyed Donuts with the Deans, hotdog cookouts, GloCade arcade games, airbrush t-shirt art, and E-sports tournaments. San Jacinto College Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer also stopped by some of the events to welcome students back for the new semester.

The activities give students a chance to visit the campus student centers to not only join in on the festivities but to see what additional resources the Student Engagement and Activities offices have available to them.
