DOBSON — Organizers of Surry Community College’s Week of Welcome for new students say the effort has been well received, in spite of weather earlier in the week literally raining on their best-made plans.Vice President of Student Services Randy Ledford cited recent studies indicating student involvement with activities and higher graduation rates as one reason behind the event.“We are trying to engage students through activities because the more they are involved the better their college experience is and the more stay and complete their degrees,” Ledford said. He explained the proposition is different for community colleges with a more diverse student body, in contrast to four-year schools.
