Cerritos College throws an event to welcome back returning and new students alike at the beginning of every semester for over six years. For the price of waiting in line, students can get an In-N-Out burger, a bag of chips, and a soda.
According to Amna Jara, Coordinator of Student Activities, this is her first time helping serve food at the event.
“It’s good to start off because other colleges don’t do this,” ASCC senate member Mayra Cortez said.
“Today (Tuesday), we do it in the afternoon to help the students who come to school at 5:30 p.m. and on. Some students come after work and are hungry,” she added.
About an hour before the event started, a long line formed with hungry students waiting for the In-N-Out truck to serve.
Raquel Ramirez, math major, said she loves In-N-Out and felt that waiting in line was worth it, “In-N-Out makes the best burgers out there and to get it for free is awesome. It makes it worth being a student at Cerritos.”
Jessie Sisneros, psychology major, describes what it was like at the end of line.
“Sure, I’ve got nothing else better to do while I wait until class starts, so why not?,” Sisneros said.
