Gould Academy New Student Orientation day!
New Student orientation day started out with registration in the McLaughlin Science building, then moved on to some welcome lectures by new GA President Matt Ruby, and Director of Admissions Todd Ormiston who gave us some statistics about the new profile of the schools students. Evidently 18% of new students have a sibling who was either a Gould graduate or a current Gould student, and we have students from as far away as Turkey! Thanks Todd!
The party moved outside for a few more orientation exercises…
Meanwhile, Marcello successfully avoided the orientation madness as a returning student, and got busy on the Ski Ergs with some beginning of the year lactate testing.
First years Caleb and Andrew were found in the Fieldhouse packing their bags for orientation hiking trips.
A big welcome to all of our new skiers: Sadie, Trent, Caleb, Andrew, Leela… and anyone else who decides to jump in!
We’ll see everyone back on campus in a couple of days when we get practices rolling.
