Welcome Week photo“We’re really excited about the new school year. We had a great turn out and students were able to connect again, or for the first time, after the summer break,” said Eric Wignall, Interim Executive Director of Admissions at Ancilla College. 

Vendors, who provided support for the event, had information tables, as well as prizes, included Ace Fitness, Bowen Center, Fitness Forum, and Plymouth Wal-Mart Vision Center.

In addition, students won a wide range of prizes from the drawings. Local donations included gift cards from Applebee’s, Christos, Five Star, Hacienda Mexican Restaurant, Papa John’s, Symphony Restaurant, Wal-Mart, and Wings Etc. Papa John’s also donated pizzas for Wednesday and water was donated by Walgreens and the Plymouth branch of Culligan.
