Midwest City, Okla. – The fall semester is in full swing and students were welcomed back this week with donuts, music, and giveaways galore.
Raider Dayz is a long standing tradition at Rose State College. The first two days of each semester greets students with this welcome back party and encourages them to get involved on campus. This year, the Student Engagement team brought out the Hurts Donut Emergency Donut Vehicle to start the day off right. Student clubs and community businesses offered students giveaways and the chance to join an organization on campus. The icing on the cake was a soccer kickoff on Tuesday night. Students and staff joined in the stands to cheer on the men’s and women’s soccer teams while enjoying Big Truck Tacos and an inflatable water slide.
Kirby Harzman, Director of Student Engagement at Rose State, has put a focus on involvement for students on campus with the intention of increasing retention and giving students a great overall college experience. “Our campus events are designed with student development in mind – each part of the process helps students build leadership skills, connect with their campus, and make some new friends along the way, said Harzman.”
Student Engagement is located in the Student Services Building, room 107. Here, you can find a cozy chair to relax in and a happy face to talk to.
