Well, once again I hosted a reception for newly admitted students. I've been doing these so long seem like second nature...but still all this is still so new for Azerbaijan. And, I have to remember that...practically everything is the "first time"...though I did host an event last year for the inaugual class. Overall, I think it was good 22 of my 25 Azerbaijan students came as did most of the faculty (3), staff (25 or so) and Rector. The picture is of me doing the welcome and then letter the Rector/Ambassador welcome them too. General crowd shots....they all stand when the Ambassador walked in..I had to ask them to be seated.
