The Davis Center held its annual Welcome Day Sept. 3 to showcase various resources available to students, especially those starting college. According to staff members, about 20 students attended.

The purpose of Welcome Day was to connect students at the Davis Center with valuable resources such as health and wellness, internships, the library’s tutoring programs, student leadership and development, and Students in a Global Economy, otherwise known as SAGE, Davis Center staff said.

Allie Bernavage, who is just beginning her first semester, was walking around and chatting with staff members. She said she found the table with information about internships helpful.

“It’s good and interesting [that] people are providing resources,” said Bernavage, who hasn’t chosen a major but is considering either environmental science or early childhood education.  

Student Personnel Assistant Monica Souza, who works in student services as the internship developer, said that the college offers a lot of information for students seeking work experience.

“A lot of times students are unaware of our program and what it offers,” said Souza, who helps students find specific major-related work experience options as well as guiding them to find opportunities on their own.

Souza works directly with employers by contacting them and asking if they either have or can create positions for students to gain experience in their chosen fields.

The Davis Center Welcome Day had a game show-like spinning wheel and gave away free buttons and candy. One staff member, Monika Aldabe, who works in the health services, said that she wants to get more Davis students involved.   

“Our goal is to promote a balance of health and wellness,”  Aldabe said.

Health services plans to do outreach at the Davis Center to see what health information students would like, Aldabe said. Students have already indicated a general interest in first aid as well as information about coping with stress.

Geovani Felgueres, a recent graduate of City College, sat tucked underneath the shade structure in between the two buildings at the Davis Center. He is currently a temp working for student leadership and development.

Felgueres said he’d like to see Davis Center students become a more active part of the larger campus community.

Student Personnel Assistant of City College student leadership and development Haley Lepper, said she realizes that there are some difficulties with getting students involved on the main campus. But she encouraged students to reach out and take advantage of the opportunities provided.
