Welcome Day is an annual tradition here at Immaculate Heart. It is something that many look forward to each year. As three new freshmen, we were very excited to experience our very first Welcome Day!
The day for this event started off with each class meeting in section. It was here that we waited in anticipation for our freshman class to be called to the auditorium. Finally, they called us! We went straight to the auditorium and were astounded with the performances and each presentation from each class.
Later, the potluck and dancing on the quad began. Everyone brought lots of food to share with their friends. Welcome Day turned out to be an inspiring and fun-filled event!
We asked other freshmen for their thoughts and feelings about both Welcome Day and the Welcome Dance. Here’s what they shared:
