What I Remember From New Student Orientation

I know that New Student Orientation is a while from now, but it will probably be here before you know it. So, I thought I would share what I remember from my New Student Orientation, even though it was almost three years ago.

If I remember anything, it was that everyone that I interacted with was exceedingly nice. Everybody seemed so welcoming, which frankly, is a good representation of my time here at Illinois. I remember that we went to a New Student Welcome and ate lunch. However, what I remember the most is that I got to meet with my advisor for the first time. My first advising experience was a very positive one, and I ended up with a great schedule my first semester. If you would like to read more about my advising experiences, you may want to check out this post this post, and this post.

My advice on New Student Orientation would be to just enjoy it! I think that it is a good preview of some of what you can expect as a student here, and I remember feeling glad that the people that I met seemed genuinely interested in my success at Illinois. Enjoy yourselves, and please let me know if you have any questions about New Student Orientation!
