There was energy and excitement in the air on August 29th. The weather was gorgeous and sunny as Yo San welcomed our entering fall 2014 class at the New Student Orientation. A wonderful variety of speakers and activities was planned to ensure our incoming students begin on the “right foot” --not just for their first trimester at Yo San, but as they start the exciting journey to becoming exceptional practitioners of TCM. The orientation introduced key people, important procedures, and support vehicles, as the new cohort learned about the University and the faculty, staff and students who comprise the Yo San Community. A light breakfast of yummy delights led into a welcome by our President, and an informative and eye-opening message from YSU Alumni Association president and Board Trustee, Lisa Knickmeyer. An icebreaker helped everyone get to know one another and, as always, new Yo San students demonstrated both their diversity and shared interests—from herbs, to cycling to music and more. Over lunch, everyone gathered into established mentor/mentee groups for a Labor Day weekend apropos feast.
The fall 2014 New Student Orientation concluded with a highly anticipated raffle for textbooks and herbal samples, and the distribution of fully-loaded welcome bags containing student, faculty, and alumni created/designed products. Special thanks to YSUSA Student Ambassadors-- Pei-Jen, Shannon and Lana—for helping to make the orientation a success. And congratulations and kudos to the newly enrolled addition to our Yo San family. Good luck on your journey; we are with you every step of the way!
