Currently, the traditional welcoming party is a hallmark of the college where seniors members show the facilities to the first year students. Subsequently, they are brought to the theatre to hear the speech of the honourable Principal and the faculties’ representatives where students can make questions about the college’s programs and other activities. A short while later, all the members of the college converge in the main yard to exchange experiences and hobbies until the day ends.
The actual event does not cover the expectative of the students as they consider these activities old-fashioned. As a result of this, it would be strongly recommendable to remove, mainly, the discourse of the Principal, and arrange several projects where students had to make use of their social skills discover what the university can offer them. Apart from this, it would be very effective to create a website where students could make suggestion about how they would like to be welcomed.
In the light of the about, it is crucial to modify the classic event and apply some immediate changes if the college in interested in being sufficiently attractive for students in the century twenty-one.
