Student wins CWI lunchbox at welcome back event CWI Student Leadership Coordinator, Harrison Watts, believes Week of Welcome events present an opportunity for students to bond with others who are feeling anxious about starting a new semester.

“For students who are looking to make new friends or get involved on-campus, the best way to socialize is to put yourself in an environment like these events,” said Watts. “These activities have people who are just as nervous to meet others or may have a ton of questions, too.”
