Would it be bad to wear dark jeans, a dressy shirt, and nice shoes for the Monday events? I forgot to get my slacks dry-cleaned. :oops:

I feel silly being worked-up about this, but I am.


No one will care. Seriously.


You're great at putting 0L fears to rest.

Portal is just a big brainstorming exercise (which goes on about 3 days too long). No need to bring anything but maybe a pen.

As far as clothes, just wear a nice shirt, maybe a jacket if you want to look especially spiffy on the school facebook. Last year there were some people in polos and some people in suits and everything in between.

Woo for stupid 0L questions! Yeeey! I have another... the orientation schedule says that check-in goes from 9am-1pm, and it seems that the first mandatory activity (outside of the pictures taken during the nebulous 9am-1pm time frame) is from 1pm-3pm. Realistically, is it important to be there closer to 9am or is 10am okay? 10:30? 11? Where do you draw the line? I don't want to be there too early with nothing to do, but I also don't want to be considered late...

I was wondering about this as well. I think I'm gonna be there at 10ish, especially since I already got my wildcard last week.

The lines were pretty bad last year, but better early.

I have a full size locker to myself, and I will fight to the death to keep it that way.


Noes! Are all the good locker buddies already taken?

Nonunique and I got the protip as 1Ls that if you went to Student Affairs before orientation, you could just ask to get your locker then. At the time, they didn't require locker buddies, as they did at orientation. So he and I (and a number of other 2010ers) got singles.

Is that how you got the locker to yourself in the first place?

Me and my locker buddy paired up 'blind date' style, and I'm really not that concerned about it. Also really can't imagine filling the locker up and needing the extra space. Am I missing something?
