Last weekend was Welcome Weekend for newly admitted students a the UNC School of Social Work. As things boiled down to the last minute, I was a little nervous, but I think it went great! I especially loved meeting all of the admitted students. There was such an amazing range of interest from child welfare to using exercise within mental health. Students came from California, Wyoming, Washington D.C., and other places all over the country. I wish we had the amazing sunny, blue skies we usually do in North Carolina, but the gloomy weather didn’t make anyone less excited about being there.
The newly admitted students had the opportunity to go to a mock class with either Natasha Bowen or Dan Hudgins, be a part of a small group discussion in an area of their interest, meet professors and learn about certificates and other programs at the fair, hear from Dean Richman, talk to current students, and more. There was a lot of information to process, but everyone kept smiling!
Thank you to everyone who came. It really was wonderful getting to talk to you and hear about the awesome plans you have for your life. I can’t wait to see you in the fall!
