The fall semester is well underway at Northeast Alabama Community College. Recently, the Student Government Association (SGA), sponsored by Joan Reeves, Director of Student Activities, welcomed NACC’s student body by sponsoring lunch and a DJ in the quad. Many of the college’s organizations set up booths around the quad to advertise the numerous activities in which students can get involved while at Northeast. In addition to the amazing music and lunch, students, faculty and staff participated in numerous games provided by the college’s organizations.
According to Reeves, “Sponsoring this event proved to be a great way to celebrate the beginning of a new school year while at the same time letting students know the extra-curricular activities Northeast has to offer. Events like this enhance the college experience for our students.” Over a hundred faculty, staff, and students were in attendance to enjoy the music and food while also learning more about the campus and its extra-curricular activities. SGA president, Juan Contreras, noted, "The SGA worked very hard on making this one of the most memorable Welcome Back events. In the end, all the hard work was well worth it. I think it was an awesome way to let the students know just how special they are at NACC while at the same time provide them with information regarding the college.”
A special thank you to all of the organizations that set up booths to promote the work they do at NACC. In addition to the SGA, those organizations include the NACC theatre, the NACC Foundation Board, Sigma Kappa Delta, Phi Theta Kappa, Mu Alpha Theta, Rotaract, Presidential Hosts, NACC Music Department, Campus Christian Ministries, Skills USA, Student Nurses Association, Student Veterans’ Association, AAUW, and Family Services of North Alabama. Several of these organizations also provided door prizes for student drawings.
