Orientation Week at Einstein was a flurry of activity as the Class of 2016 and entering Ph.D. students were welcomed to campus.
Events ranged from the introductory welcomes by leadership of the respective medical and graduate programs to a variety of fun activities, including an evening boat cruise along the Hudson River taking in views of the Manhattan skyline, two movie nights, an Einstein club "meet & greet" and BBQ, and a book sale to support the College of Medicine’s student-run ECHO Clinic.
"Our objective is to acclimate students to their new home here at Einstein while offering them various avenues for connecting with each other, along with the opportunity to check out the Bronx and Manhattan," said Joan Junger, director of student activities, where staff organized and oversaw all of the week’s events.
She added, "When classes begin, it’s time to buckle down. So, the week offers some levity before getting down to studying."
