2015 MSRE Orientation

October 07, 2015

Every year, incoming MSRE students start school a few days early to attend their week long New Student Orientation.  The whirlwind week begins with introductions to the curriculum, faculty, and programs the Center offers. Throughout the week they tour development projects, visit companies in Seattle and across the sound, and meet industry leaders to learn more about the Seattle market and the varied careers within real estate.  The week ends with a reception sponsored by our esteemed Runstad Center Advisory Board.  Here are a few pictures from the week…
