Cerritos College has a traditional way of welcoming students into the new semester with free In N Out burgers and chips.

The first day of the event was at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 8. and to make sure the school targets night students and faculty, there was also an event that started at 5 p.m. which took place on Thursday, Sept. 9.

Although the burger is free there are a couple requirements in order to receive it.

Students and faculty must have a valid Cerritos College ID and the current semester sticker.

Kimberly Silva, women’s studies major, said, “This is my first semester waiting in line for In N Out. I have my own food, but it’s free food so I can’t deny free food.”

Silva also stated that she would be more involved if the campus offered these free meals monthly.

Cosmetology major Cindy Palomo said, “I’ve been waiting in line for 15 minutes, and I will stay in line as long as it takes. They usually have this [welcome week] within the first two days so I expect a good turn out.”

During fall semester 2015, the campus held Welcome Week during the first week of classes.

For the current semester, the school decided to combine Club Info Day and Welcome Week.

Interim Dean of Student Services Frances Gusman said, “We felt that the clubs needed a few weeks to get a little bit more organized. A lot of times our students aren’t ready to pick up and go and put on an event of this size during the first week of school.”

Edmundo Leva, undecided major, said, “Having welcome week is pretty cool, I only would have waited for 30 minutes max for the food.”
