Carl Albert State College Welcomes Students to Campus
Welcome back activities have been ongoing during the first weeks of the fall semester at Carl Albert State College, with one major event being the Connection Carnival at the Poteau campus. The annual event is an effort to provide students the opportunity to meet peers on a social level, learn about on-campus clubs and organizations, and connect with student leaders and faculty/staff in a fun and relaxed environment.
President Garry M. Ivey stated, “The annual Connection Carnival would not have been possible over the past few years without the support of Steve and Pam Holton. The Holtons have graciously provided financial support so that we can set up a picnic and activities for those attending this event. Steve and Pam love Carl Albert State College, and this is one of the many ways their generosity makes a significant impact at Carl Albert.” President Ivey continued, “On behalf of the College, I extend appreciation to the Holtons and other friends of the College throughout the region. We are fortunate that individuals as well as businesses look for ways to make Carl Albert State College better and better each and every year.”
In addition to campus groups, several community organizations were on hand at this year’s carnival. The Poteau Evening Lion’s Club served snow cones, the Oklahoma National Guard set up a large air-filled obstacle course, The Tulsa Vet Center was on hand to visit with students about services, the Choctaw Nation answered questions about student assistance available, and Choices Pregnancy Center representatives set up an information booth.
