“Luckily, we had downpours just before and after the picnic. The picnic itself was great,” said Harrisburg Admissions Director Eric Kniskern, following the event held for accepted applicants on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 23rd.
Both the Delaware and Harrisburg campuses hosted similar events for accepted applicants that provided them with an opportunity to get to know potential classmates as well as members of the faculty and staff.
In Harrisburg, Associate Dean for Faculty Research and Development Ben Barros
and Distinguished Professor John Dernbach
as well as staff from Admissions
, Financial Aid
, and the Harrisburg Civil Law Clinic
joined the accepted applicants for the festivities.
On the Delaware campus, several members of the faculty including Larry Barnett
, Serena Williams
, Larry Hamermesh
, Alan Garfield
, Patrick Johnston
, Vice Dean J. Patrick Kelly
, Kathleen Turezyn
, Ann Britton
, Michael Goldberg
, Ken Kristl
, and Associate Dean for Information Services and Technology and Director of the Legal Information Center Michael Slinger
joined staff from Admissions, Financial Aid, Career Development
, and the Registrar’s Office
to greet accepted applicants.
Though inclement weather struck the events on both campuses, those in attendance made sure that the weather did not dampen spirits.
