New students who missed the first Taking Care of Business Day get a second chance on Friday, July 18; despite the name, there’s plenty of pleasure mixed with the business, including a not-to-be-missed cruise on Seattle’s waterways.
There’s a good deal of business for new students at Cornish to get done as they work through financial aid, enroll for classes, and sign up for residence halls; the Admission Department has found a way to make it painless by adding a large dose of fun. The answer is “Taking Care of Business Day,” which is, in reality, two days. The first of these was several weeks ago — the next one is coming right up on Friday, July 18. Just like the last TCB Day, incoming students can look forward to making friends, learning about their new school, listening to music, and more: an ice cream bike, a popcorn machine, a button-making apparatus, and a bubble machine. All this is topped off with a dinner cruise starting on nearby Lake Union, motoring through the Montlake Cut near the U of W, and onto enormous Lake Washington. To get the flavor of this signature event, check out the video interview with transfer student in theater, Sarah Ball.
To watch videos and read about all the great stuff that happened on the first TCB Day, see Taking Care of Business, Cornish Style.
For more information on everything that can be done at TCB Day, new students should use the login they’ve been for: compass.cornish.edu, then go to “Admission” then “admit.”
