The Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center (ECC) hosts a series of annual community luncheons to welcome incoming freshmen and transfer students to the UW and celebrate their acceptance into the university.
New students have the opportunity to network with student leaders, faculty and staff, as well as build community with their peers. Each event was held at the Kelly ECC and featured a program, cultural cuisine, prizes and music. The luncheons began on Oct. 2 with African American community event, followed by the Pacific Islander (Oct. 6), Asian and Asian American (Oct. 7), Latino (Oct. 8) and Native American (Oct. 10) gatherings.
