IECC welcomes new and returning students to a feast gathering. This is held on Thursday evening during the second week of classes. Students, their families, staff, faculty, college administrators and community members come together to cook, serve and share in food and conversation. During the social event there is drumming and dancing. Elder Skip Dick (Songhees) says the gathering is "patterned after our way of doing things," and "there's great energy." The feast helps build strong community bonds and encourages respect, trust and collaboration.
