Yesterday, I attended the international students’ orientation. This was just the kind of official, structured welcome that I’ve been waiting for over the past few days. After the expected exhortations to live each day of this short experience to the fullest, to interact with the Irish students, and to get involved in campus events, I heard a series of presenters speak all morning on topics like registration, “societies” (clubs), and volunteering. At this point, I was vividly reminded of how it felt to be a first-year at Union (especially during that first month).
Despite the crazy
amount of introductory information being thrown at me, though, I was relieved to finally hear a sort
of overview of what life here is supposed to look like.
|I'll always be partial to Union, of course...but this place isn't too shabby-looking, either.|
