Great Fun and Success at the 2014 ASSN Fall Social

School of Nursing

The Associated Students of the School of Nursing kicked off the 2014‒2015 school year with a bang, with delicious food, drinks, and prizes.  More than 90 UCSF students, old and new, gathered at the Nursing Mezzanine on Wednesday, Oct. 15 for the 2014 ASSN Fall Social.

These included students from the MEPN program, first- and second-year nursing students, a Ph.D. student, Social and Behavioral Health students, and even those taking time off this year. All joined in the mingling and merry-making.

The event was catered by local Indian/Pakistani restaurant Tikka Masala. The menu of the night included yummy samosa appetizers, succulent chicken tikka masala, naan and dal, with vegetarian options. The beer and wine menu included Angry Orchard’s hard apple cider, Blue Moon, crisp grüner veltliner, and bold cabernet sauvignon.

An array of Amazon, Starbucks and Jamba Juice gift-card prizes were raffled off—and, best of all, students had a chance to relax and take a breather before the school year plunges our cortisol levels into never-ending overdrive.

A special thanks is well deserved for Ashley King, ASSN social chair, for organizing and making the event possible.

We should all be looking forward to the next ASSN social event coming up next winter with cookies, coffees, and teas, oh my! With the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, I, for one, can’t wait for good company, hot beverages and sweet morsels!
