Breaking the record with a total of 3,500 meals served, students waited in line, anticipating a free burger, chips and a soda on Aug. 16 and Aug. 18.

For years, Cerritos College has had its annual Welcome Day featuring In-N-Out’s food.

“The line was pretty fast and I sure would come back next time,” Jerry Jones, a criminal justice major, said.

“I heard about the event earlier and wanted to check it out. All you need is your student ID and the fall [2011] sticker, so why not?”

The event was the largest students and faculty had ever seen.

“This year we’ve seen that we have a lot of students and this event is great because it encourages students to get their stickers. The stickers help support a lot of programs around campus,” Holly Bogdanovich, director of student activities, said.

As a DJ played music in the background, the line began to reach all the way to the west wing closest to the library entrance.

Other students who had already endured the blazing sun and standing in line found shady areas to sit and enjoy their food, taking breaks from their busy schedules and adjusting back to school.
