Spring HESA Orientation 2016

SPA would like to officially welcome our Spring 2016 HESA admits! We are so excited for you to join this program and cannot wait to see the ideas and talent you bring to the cohort.

During our “Welcome Back & New Spuddy Celebration” event, our newest HESA students had the opportunity to get to know their peers. The evening started with a University of South Carolina men’s basketball game followed by a potluck dinner sponsored by our Orientation Director (Cassie Hurst) and Function Planning Director (Blake Brown). During the dinner, the Spring 2016 admits were surprised with the revealing of their Spuddy pair. These partnerships match admits with a current HESA student and are designed to foster friendships within the cohort and make the transition into the graduate program as smooth as possible.

Thank you to everyone that came out to support the event! We wish our newest HESA students all of the best.
