When the sun, the beach, food and fun people get together, you cannot help but have a good time and make a ton of new friends. The new students at IAU will confirm this for on the 19th of May 2012, that is exactly what happened. The welcome party for the freshers was held at the picturesque Sandy beach which provided them a chance to meet and mingle with their seniors and professors at school. Amidst games of volleyball and splashes in the sea, loads of new friendships were forged. It was an ideal welcome and it helped ease the freshers into their new life at Saint Lucia.
