“Welcome to the class of 2015,” said Associate Dean Beth Kransberger as she welcomed the Fall 2012 class of law students on Monday, August 13. “You are walking through the doors of opportunity.”
Due to the large incoming class of 315 students Monday’s orientation was held in two separate classrooms united by a virtual video and audio feed that allowed students to experience orientation as one group.
The breakfast and lunch sessions allowed students like Nikki Schrey from Fresno and Joe Rodriquez from San Francisco to meet and mingle with faculty and staff.
“Meeting everyone has really calmed my nerves,” said Schrey. “I love it! I love everything about it so far! I have met some great people, I’m very excited and I’m trying not to worry about everything right now.”
“TJSL is awesome and I am so excited! I can’t wait to see what happens next,” said Rodriquez about his first day at TJSL.
Dean Kransberger told the new TJSL students “Just remember, the people that you are meeting right now are going to be your colleagues in the professional world. So always treat each other with professionalism.”
Orientation for part-time students will be held on the evenings of Wednesday, August 15 and Thursday, August 16.
All new students are invited to experience the Harbor Cruise on Friday, August 17.
Classes for the fall semester begin on Monday, August 20.
