New Undergraduates at Orientation

Undergraduate Orientation


The 342 students in the Haas undergraduate class of 2010 began their studies this July with team-building activities and a new career conference. Here, a lively game of Rock, Paper, Scissors between the Gold and Blue cohorts kicked off the orientation activities. Later, juniors attended a first-ever, one-day career conference made possible by a gift from alumnus Mark DiPaola, BS 99. His gift supported a similar conference for Haas seniors in August.
