On Tuesday, Sept. 5, faculty and staff of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs (SPPUA) welcomed new Huskies and those returning to campus at its Graduate Student Orientation.
The event kicked off with an ice breaker introduction, followed by small group discussions and a campus tour. The orientation concluded with a welcome reception during which approximately 50 new students got to meet SPPUA alumni, faculty and staff.
SPPUA Director Matthias Ruth said he was delighted to welcome new students and to catch up with those returning.
“The enthusiasm, intellectual curiosity, and diversity of the new members of our community are inspiring. As we embrace new students and welcome back those returning, we continue to inform public policy and urban affairs at the regional, national, and international levels.”
– Matthias Ruth, Director and Professor, School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs
