Hawks Welcome Students With a Week Full of Activities

The beginning of a new semester at Howard College and SWCD are always an exciting time of year. Families are busy moving new students into the dorms, faculty and staff are gearing up for the arrival of new students, and the Athletics teams are working with new teams. Part of the fun is seeing all the new faces and being present for the next step in someones life as they start college. For some, it’s a bit overwhelming and may be the first time they have spent much time away from home. It’s important to Howard College to make all our students feel welcome and understand they are part of a new exciting family of individuals who are all eager to meet them. Each campus has some type of activity to welcome new students to campus. SWCD offers an entire NSO experience for new students and families. The Big Spring campus schedules events all week long and introduces students to the types of activities they host throughout the semester. Lamesa brings students to participate in some of the Big Spring events and San Angelo offers a few activities of their own
