Bonnie Enderle (from left), Claudia Martinez and Isabel Martinez take the survey so they can take advantage of the free merchandise provided by Student Leadership and Campus Life at DMC.
Del Mar students were welcomed back to campus with free personalized mugs, dry erase calendars and dog tags on Del Mar College’s East and West Campus on Jan. 25-26.
“We wanted to welcome the students back in a fun way and all they (had) to do (was) take a quick little survey before they (got) in line to receive their free stuff,” said Bennie Clark, administrative assistant of Student Leadership and Campus Life.
Students who took the survey answered questions such as name, e-mail, gender and whether this was their first campus event. They were then free to grab and make their own personalized items.
“I think it is pretty cool that they are doing this. I’ve been able to meet new people here in line,” said Carissa Otwell, a welding major. “I just met this one person and we had a great conversation and he turned out to be pretty cool.”
Samuel Driscoll, an English major, said: “This is my first campus event and I think this event turned out to be really cool and exciting. I’m glad they gave us this opportunity and I’m looking forward to more.”
