Yesterday was orientation day for the incoming Haas class. The students I met seemed very happy and excited to be here. The Cal Band played a few songs during lunch in the Haas Courtyard while the students visited the various Haas Sponsored organizations/clubs that were there tabling. At the end of the day, all of the students received a backpack with the Haas School logo on the back, and “Class of 2011” underneath the logo. Stuffed inside each backpack was their class student directory, which has the lowdown on Haas resources, as well as the new students’ pictures and their profiles. Hopefully they all realize the directory is in the backpack.
