Students from West Shore Connect, a program for students who had high-school learning-support or life-skills classes and are attending college, went on an Easter egg hunt Tuesday.

The hunt, held around the Boyer House, was part of the program’s Connection Tuesday, which is the second Tuesday of each month.

Connection Tuesday is an opportunity for West Shore Connect students to get involved with a club on campus, participate in club activities and meet their peers.

The Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) club sponsored the hunt.

This is the second year West Shore Connect participated in an egg hunt with CAC due to demand among students in the program.

More than 200 plastic eggs that separate at the middle were placed in the field at the Boyer House. The eggs contained chocolate, other types of candy or CAC merchandise.

“The egg hunt was so much fun to see, and it was a beautiful day outside for it,” West Shore Connect student mentor Gabryelle Breski said. “The students were beyond excited to keep the tradition going and looked forward to the challenge.”
