Many traditions have been upset by the coronavirus, but one important AFLSE and LSE tradition has prevailed. For more than twenty years, AFLSE chapters have hosted bon voyage parties for new students starting their studies at LSE. This year, Destination LSE events were held in a virtual format. Five Zoom meetings were held on various dates in August to allow LSE offer holders from all over the nation to interact with alumni volunteers and ask any questions they have about the year ahead.
As many as 50 offer holders and as few as 20 attended each event. Current students and recent graduates answered questions about the School and the current environment. Each program made use of Zoom breakout rooms to allow small groups of alumni and students to interact.
One of the highlights of each event was a welcome message from LSE Director Dame Minouche Shafik. You can watch that video by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTO_OUvMp4Y&feature=youtu.be
Many thanks to all our dedicated volunteers for contributing to the success of this year's Destination LSE series!
