Welcome Days were held April 4 and 5 for new and returning students for Spring quarter.

Welcome Days is a quarterly tradition held by the Office of Student Life. It’s intent is to start off the new quarter with a welcoming environment for the students attending Pierce College Puyallup.

“This my first quarter at pierce and with all this stuff going on, I’m glad I decided to go to college,” student Kira Ramirez said. “I do wish it was everyday though.”

This spring quarter, Welcome Days had many activities for students to participate in. Activities such as a bunny petting farm, zorb balls, rock climbing, trampoline bungee jumping, pie eating contest, caricature artist and henna were all apart of the festivities ensuring that the quarter started out with new heights in trampoline bungee jumping, cozy bunny cuddles and cool body art.

“I didn’t know what henna was until I saw it here,” student Gina Whalen said “there was a lot of cool things going around. It was the first time I’d ever gotten in one of those hamster balls.”

I'm a 17 year old who's determined to make a difference in someone's life. I think my purpose in life is to make at least one person smile everyday. I was born in a petroleum exporting country known as Venezuela. Being raised in a Hispanic household, I'm fluent in both English and Spanish and have dual citizenship. I have a wonderful mother, father and sister and they're my support system and thanks to them I'm the person I am today. I’m taking all business courses in order to obtain my business associate here at Pierce College Puyallup. Afterwards, I want to get my masters in business administration at Milgard school of business at the University of Washington in tacoma and own my own company one day. As a reporter for The Puyallup Post I want our readers to feel like they're more than a student and that they're a part of the Pierce College Puyallup community.
