Faculty and staff dressed in colourful shirts and hula skirts to catch the Hawaiian theme of Student Appreciation Day on March 20. Free snacks were distributed and draws were held for various prizes at the Welland campus.
The prizes included backpacks, gift cards for iTunes and Chartwell, a dinner and movie package, among many others.
Jars of candy were displayed, and if a student guessed the number of candy in the jar, the contents were given as a prize.
Student service offices, such as L20 and M203, were decorated with leis and flowers around the Welland campus.
Chelsea Morin, a General Arts and Science student, said she “really enjoyed the free food and the activities.”
“I really think they should have Student Appreciation Day once a month, as it’d be a much needed break for students stressed with their studies.”
Michelle Silk and Karen Castellan in M203 received positive feedback from the students. They said the free snacks were greatly welcomed by students and their Hawaiian outfits received admiration as well.
In The Core, volunteers handed out movie-style popcorn. Various flavours were available as well for students, creating a constant stream of movement.
The rooms decorated with flowers and fake grasses were done creatively, and the displays were eye-catching and attractive.
