Hello, and welcome HBA Class of 2022!

Congrats and welcome HBA Class of 2022!!

We are so excited to have you as part of the Ivey community. Your time at Ivey will be unlike anything you have ever experienced. You’ll meet incredible people, learn from talented professors, and have your mind challenged in new and exciting ways. The friends you make and the memories you share with them will stick with you for the rest of your life.

With that being said, this year will likely look different than you expected. Over the summer, the program administration, faculty, the HBAA, Ivey Clubs and the Orientation Team have been working hard not just get through this unprecedented situation, but to to make sure your time here is engaging and unique.

As the Orientation Team, we have planned a series of events and activities to give you an opportunity to meet your section, to learn about Ivey, and to make sure you feel ready for the first day of classes. As with all your Ivey classes - make sure to come ready to contribute!

We are so excited to meet you all soon and feel grateful for opportunity to help support you through your HBA1 year.

See you in September!

Sincerely,

Will Sanderson
