Welcome Week 2013 kicked off on Monday, August 26 with none other than Willy Wonka promising buckets of candy and chocolate to the five holders of his coveted Golden Tickets. Wonka’s Ooompa-Loompas secretly concealed five Golden Tickets in the pockets of unsuspecting Blue Jays, who had no idea how worthy they really were.

Once the five Jays were brought to Wonka’s Inventing Room inside his Chocolate Factory, they were bestowed rivers of chocolate, blue bubble gum, gobs of gobstoppers, and giant blueberries.

Blue Jays of all classes, from pre-freshmen to seniors, experienced a sugary sweet Welcome Week courtesy of Willy Wonka, and the Student Council.
