Class of 2014 New Student Orientation – Part 1

Yesterday our staff had the pleasure of welcoming  our new Haas Undergraduate  Class of 2014 to Haas. This year, our New Student Orientation included an interactive game to allow students to get to know their cohort members.

Your “Gamemakers” are taking over your blog today to declare a winner. Of course, we hope that one of our new bloggers will write a student perspective article soon (Part 2). On that note, it’s not too late to apply to be a blogger (.pdf).

Big thanks to Tyler Wishnoff and all of your amazing 2014 Cohort Leaders! Thanks to everyone who tweeted. Take a look at all #HaasCohorts tweets by clicking here. Congratulations and welcome to all six 2014 cohorts (photos below).

Point Calculation and Winner
