On August 26, the Florida heat didn’t keep the students of Tarpon Campus from enjoying their welcome back festival. A number of organizations and employers were present to let SPC students know about all of the opportunities available to them. With such a huge turn out and long lines of people waiting for free burgers, hot dogs, and Italian ice the fall welcome back was a huge success!
Below are photographs of the celebration along with information for all of the represented organizations. If you are interested in any of the organizations below, don’t hesitate to contact them!
