Welcome Day @ Wright/Humboldt Park!


Welcome Week 2015 kicked off September 2, 2015, with a “Welcome Day” event at Wright College’s Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center. This event is one of many at Wright College/Humboldt Park designed to promote programs and student resources, as well as encourage student success.

Welcome Day highlighted Wright/Humboldt Park’s new and returning programs and the  Fall 12-week session beginning September 21, 2015. The event also celebrated the new Wright College/Humboldt Park Reserve Library & Writing Center.

Students enjoyed boxed lunches, participated in raffle giveaways, and had the opportunity to receive heart screenings from the Diabetes Empowerment Center of Humboldt Park.

During the event’s “meet-and-greet,” students and visitors were able to meet and ask questions of Wright/Humboldt Park staff. Staff participants included Katie Ordinario, director of Student Activities; Joe Reaves, director of the Career Planning and Placement Center; academic advisors; and many others. Thank you to all student, faculty and staff participants!

Welcome Week runs through September 11, 2015, and features the annual Wilburpalooza celebration at Wright’s Montrose/Narragansett location. Check the Welcome Week 2015 Schedule of Events for more information.
