A Welcome Block party was held at Ivy Tech Community College’s Gary campus. Ivy Tech sponsored the event for students as classes for the spring semester got under way. The party had a Hawaiian theme and students were able to enjoy refreshments, get information on campus groups and talk to representatives from four-year colleges. Mentalist Sean Bott worked his mental wizardry on guests. For more information on programs at Ivy Tech, call (219) 981-1111.
