Landed in the US a week ago and still battling the Jetlag and getting adjusted to the surroundings of the new place, the orientation day has arrived which was a long awaited one. The orientation day contains a tight schedule packing in a lot of topics to cover throughout the day starting from 8 AM to 4 PM which includes free Breakfast and Lunch: D
The first of the 2-day Orientation program starts on a brighter note wherein People are coming in, getting themselves registered, taking a seat at one of the many round tables present and meeting all new faces here and there which adds excitement to the fact that everyone would be surrounded with unknown and new people all around and the day starts with everyone filled with full of energy.
The welcome speech was kicked in by Mr. Greg Beaver who is also the Director of MBA and MS Programs who talked about the demographics of the current batch, followed by a short speech by the Academic Directors, Dr Karthik Kannan and Dr Mohit Tawarmalani. After the brief speeches, there were numerous sessions such as Student Life, Krannert Organizations, Academic Integrity, Krannert Professional Development Center and Emergency Preparedness to name a few. It was then followed by Professional Photo of each person covering the headshot.
