The New Student Record
If you haven’t already ordered the New Student Record there isn’t much time left to do so. If you are still deciding, allow me to point out perhaps the most useful aspect of it. During Orientation week you meet a LOT of people in a relatively short span of time. In fact, you meet so many people that most first years find it pretty much impossible to remember the names of very many of them. This is where the Record comes in handy. Just break out your copy, flip through until you find their picture, and you can avoid a lot of those awkward “Uh….what did you say your name was again?” situations. It also contains a lot of useful information, like the hours of the commons and phone numbers of places in town. So if you are still on the fence, I would definitely recommend it!
