Students arriving to campus had fun in a variety of welcome activities in advance of Wednesday’s first day of class. At least 150 new students showed up at a Playfair icebreaker event on Library Mall, where they played games, sang together and participated in other activities designed to bring them together. The event was part of a series of Wisconsin Welcome programming sponsored by Student Affairs.
