The BBQ on the roof of Entrada, the student housing apartment complex, was hopping on Thursday, August 9 with 1L’s, 2L’s, 3L’s, TJSL staff members, Dean Rudy Hasl and even a TJSL Trustee.
“The BBQ hosted by TJSL was a wonderful event that provided a warm welcome to students who are new to San Diego, Entrada and law school life and also a nice opportunity for the new and existing students residing in Entrada to become acquainted with each other,” said Alumna and Board of Trustee member, Kendall Berkey ’94. “I think it is extremely important for the TJSL community to support its students in a variety of ways from the beginning of their law school journey.”
Each year before the Fall semester TJSL hosts a BBQ bash so that students living at Entrada can mix & mingle and get to know their neighbors.
“The BBQ was a great mixer!” said Shantelee Christie 2L. “It was good to catch up with old friends and hear about the things they've experienced and conquered over their summer break. It was also great to meet the new 1Ls and get to know about their background and the things they hope to achieve on their law school journey. It was really uncanny how just a year ago, their fears and anxieties were my fears and anxieties.”
Kathryn Bleazard 1L said she is not anxious s but rather excited to be hitting the books again. “I can’t wait to get to class and start writing briefs and doing research.” To which her new 1L friends standing with her at the table chuckled and replied, “Ya, let’s see how long that lasts.”
Entrada is a 172 unit student housing complex just a block from TJSL.
“Entrada is a great place to live, especially given the proximity to school, Christie says. “It is student friendly and the leasing staff does their best to cater to needs of every tenant.”
Fall classes officially begin on Monday, August 20.
