The college will be hosting KC Kickoff next week.
To welcome students, free drinks and Charlie’s Sno-balls will be served Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 4 and 5, in front of the Watson Library.
Classes on the Kilgore campus will be canceled from 11 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, for a pep rally in Masters Gym.
A free lunch sponsored by Student Life will be served after the pep rally between Masters Gym and the Devall Student Center. The lunch will include hot dogs, hamburgers, cookies and snow-cones.
Kickoff will also include an organizations fair which will offer students a chance to learn more about the different organizations on campus.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know as many students as I can and hopefully providing a good experience for them,” said Ross Costanzo, new assistant director of student life. “I want to improve the excitement on campus and encourage students to be involved in student activities and intramurals.”
To conclude Welcome Week, the Rangers will play Tyler Junior College 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium in Tyler.
“Being from New York it’s great to see new faces and I look forward to a new and fun school year,” Costanzo said.
