Pitt Community College is kicking off its week of welcome for the spring semster.
Each day, there are opportunities for students to engage outside of the academic classroom.
It is part of their Week of Welcome for the spring 2019 semeter to get students connected to their community.
Monday was volunteer day.
Students turned old t-shirt scraps into dog toys for the Pitt County Animal Shelter, Pitt Friends and the humane society.
“We have events each day to help connect our students not only to campus but other outside agencies,” student activities coordinator Katelynn Speas said.
The second activity is creating scarves for cancer patients in Honduras.
Speas said the idea came from a student in Honduras who survived breast cancer herself.
“A student that created their foundation so we made that connection here so we are not only supporting our own but making a global impact,” Speas said.
The remainder of the week includes a day where student clubs and organizations can recruit members, a day where students can create vision boards, a day with an MLK breakfast and free coffee Friday.
