WE LAUNCH: New Student Orientation
All newly admitted students are required to attend WE LAUNCH, the New Student Orientation which will be held July 31-August 2, 2015. Plan on arriving to WE LAUNCH by Noon on Friday, July 31. WE LAUNCH will conclude around Noon on the afternoon of Sunday, August 2. This will be your first opportunity to get to know the other students in your cohort, other first year students, your professors, as well as second and third year students.
During WE LAUNCH, you will hear from the various partners who are here to help you be successful at Haas, get a taste of what to expect in the classroom, and generally have a great time!
A detailed schedule for Orientation should be available in early July.
- Dates: July 31-August 2
- Location: Haas School of Business
- Lodging information: Students will stay at either the Hotel Shattuck or Hotel Durant, depending on which cohort you’re in. You will be assigned to a shared room with a random same-gender student. An important part of the WE LAUNCH weekend is the residency component and therefore all students are required to stay in the hotels provided on Friday and Saturday night.
- What’s included: Hotel rooms, all meals, and parking are covered as part of your tuition.
- Dress code: Casual - bring comfortable clothes. Please keep in mind that some activities will be held outdoors and the weather in Berkeley can vary throughout the day and evening, so please pack accordingly!
