About a week ago, we had our Annual Summer Haas Picnic. This year it was at Tilden Park, thrown by our Social Events Committee. It was a nice afternoon in our typical, moderate, Bay Area weather.
As always, it's a nice breather in-between semesters to catch up without having to worry about the joys of homework and class readings. That is, unless you're in Summer school, in which case you're out of luck.
People funneled in and out throughout the afternoon. And, with the thought of World Cup in the air (nice work, Team U.S.A.-- you did well), there were a few rounds of light soccer. More carefree this time around, though we do have our share of competitive sports here at Haas.
The Summer is full of activities still though. There are the aforementioned Summer school
classes, the Semesters in International Business (China earlier, and upcoming Argentina/Chile
trip), and our Admissions Committee planning for our new students Orientation
(which should be entertaining, as always).
As Tony said, hope our new students are ready for a wild, but fun ride. There's a lot in store for all of you and we're glad to share in the experience.
