Students welcomed with food, fun and fellowship

The leadership class held a luncheon in Josh Tosland’s room on Sept. 4 to welcome all of the new students on campus. For the past five years, leadership has put on a luncheon for newcomers to meet one another so that they might be more comfortable during the year.

“The food was really good,” Alisa Reynold, ’07, said. “The best part was meeting all the friendly and nice people. Fresno Christian looks like a good school.”

The luncheon was held during fifth period and free food was served to the students. Different activities were planned for the students so that they might get to know each other.

“It was fun,” Adam Spears, ’04, said, “I met about eight to ten people, but the best part was standing up and introducing each other.”

Although school on campus has been in session for three weeks, the luncheon was a chance for the new students to get to know each other and some returning students

Some veterans on campus also had positive comments about the luncheon

“It’s [the luncheon] kind of there to introduce the new students,” John Stevenson, ’04, said. “It’s something we’ve done every year for a long time. I think it’s a good thing and it went really well this year.”

Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, and a variety of sodas were served at the luncheon, but to decide who got the food first, a contest for the best campus cheer was held.

After lunch each new student was introduced to everyone and participated in a trivia/game concerning campus history and faculty with help from student leadership.

The planned activities helped break the ice even further for the students.

” There were many activities,” Eunie McEntee, the luncheon’s administrator, said, “and fun decorations for the new students to make the new students not feel so awkward. It’s a chance for the new students to get to know the leadership class as well as for the leadership to get to know all the new students.”

Some students had already made friends on campus, and viewed the luncheon as a pointless activity.

“It looked stupid,” Joseph Odom, ’06, said, ” and since school started three weeks ago I already met people. I just didn’t want to waste my time.”

Most of the new students participated in the luncheon and were welcomed to the campus by student leadership.
