Ceremony of Lights

Student Welcome

Rhemy A. Brezin '13, President, Eckerd College Organization of Students

Welcome, faculty, staff and, most importantly, students.  Welcome to a new year full of excitement and promise as our campus expands with the completion of the Molecular and Life Sciences building this Spring and with the addition of our largest incoming class ever. This year we welcomed 532 freshmen into our community of scholars here at Eckerd.

We have many new initiatives within ECOS this year.  We are looking forward to seeing what the new Senators will accomplish with the Make It Happen campaign.  We are excited for the release of the Student Discount Card to be available later in the Fall Semester as well as for the continuation of the Small Changes, Significant Impact Campaign.  ECOS has partnered with Service Learning and several clubs on campus to offer all students in-depth coverage of the national election including voter registration and transportation to the polls.  Most importantly, we look forward to hearing from and working with our fellow students, so please come seek us out in the ECOS Office, located in Brown Hall.

As I told the Freshmen at Ceremony of Lights, use this time to get out there and try new things!  Join a club, run for Senate, go on a Winter Term abroad, or take a sailing class.  Whatever it is that sparks your interest but you have been too nervous or "busy" to try, get out there and do it this year.

I wish all of you the best of luck and I hope to see all of you in the ECOS Office soon.
