The Welcome Back Celebration was held on Thursday, Sept. 8, in the Iadarola Center, hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). The event featured colorful calendars and schedules, which students could decorate while enjoying tasty treats and candy.

The Center for Teaching and Learning hosted the event with hopes of having students return to the CTL and for new students to understand where the center is located and what services they have to offer. The Center for Teaching and Learning, also known as the CTL, offers free academic assistance for all students through peer tutoring and academic resources.

The event took place for over four hours in the Iadarola lobby, starting at 10 a.m. and ending around 2 p.m.

After finishing class or before going to their next class students dropped in for a quick snack and to strike up a conversation with fellow students and teachers, such as Darla Nagy, adjunct instructor of mathematics, who told said was offering extra credit to her students if they attended the event.

Senior Elisabeth Kelly was at the welcome back celebration decorating a schedule for herself and her friends who were unable to attend that day. “Decorating a schedule at the welcome back celebration is something I do every year,” Kelly said.

Terrell Knight, math major and CTL math tutor, said he was tutoring at the event and saw many students coming and going between classes. Many people were utilizing the sources offered. The Welcome Back Celebration is one of three events that the CTL will host this year. A mid-semester celebration will be held this semester as well as an end-semester celebration.

Sophomore Jake Gaspari was another student who was decorating a calendar.

“I like the CTL, they are helpful and if you are confused with a teacher they help you understand what you are learning.”
