Wear a button-down shirt that can be worn with a tie, and bring a tie in your bag.

Sounds perfect. I will do this too.

IIRC I got an e-mail that said Aug 29. You need to set up direct deposit info on CAESAR

Button down blouse and black slacks are ok for ladies, right?

Ok. breaking radio silence here.

a)If they put as much effort into getting schedules ready as they do updating us about the new carpeting, we would have had them weeks ago...

b)What's up with the guy that keeps creating events and inviting the whole fb group to? He's a transfer as far as I can tell but is trying to meet as many Class of 2014 kids as possible?

c) I would like to be able to play basketball next week, but I haven't registered for the gym yet and because I left my checkbook in Chicago and have been gone for the last 10 days and won't be back till Saturday, I will not be able to get the form in by the 22nd to be good to start on Sept 1st. So if anyone wants to get a game together at a public court (like I saw someone ask about on the fb wall) then I'd be up for that.

Be careful robotclub may scold you. Honestly though i dont really mind, id like to meet some classmates but have nowhere near the initiative to organize things like that so i dont mind piggybacking. The only weird one was the walk/run/tan thing lol. Id be down for some bball.

The event he created for tomorrow night sounds fun :).

Anyone play tennis? I'm looking for someone to play with me at McClurg's courts sometime this weekend and hopefully on a regular basis. I have two extra racquets and I'm buying new balls tomorrow, so all you need is an interest in playing!

Jesus Christ. That dude needs to cool it. 5 fb invites in 3 days.

ETA: Also, it does seem that Seward Park place is the nearest thing to the school. I'd be down to play still I think.

They can't do schedules until they sort us into sections, and they can't do that until we all show up on Monday. I heard it has something to do with a hat, I dunno what the deal is though.

Kids, are we still down for Friday at 7:00 at Citzen (364 W. Erie)? I'll meet you out front of the patio, looking nervous and checking my Blackberry compulsively.


Just arrived in Chicago yesterday and I'd love to come! Unless I pass out after spending the entire day struggling with IKEA furniture assembly, that is :)
Can you PM me your number just in case I'm late? And can you bring your adorable dog?

Anybody else headed there from McClurg? With my sense of direction, I'll probably get lost :shock:

Just remember to walk away from the lake, and you should find it fine :D

I added our event to the NU FB group; I'm guessing everyone will go to the other gathering, but if anyone doesn't feel comfortable with the social gunner but still wants to get out, I see no reason why they can't join us.

While very amusing, is this also true? I mean, sorting hat aside, do we have to wait till after day 1 of orientation to get section/class assignments? I swear I recently read that schedules would come out anytime after the 15th or something like that. Although that doesn't preclude a post-orientation sched release, I'd think it a little misleading if that was the case.

Have fun tonight - I'll be getting over a cold still.

Don't feel bad at all if you'd rather go to the later event. I think they aren't starting until 10 in the Gold Coast, so people can attend both if they want. Or, we can crash their par-tay :D

from page somewhere in the 40's:

"You will not hear me say this often, but bjs is right.

I'm pretty sure we got our sections like 2 days before orientation, grades for 1st semester came out a week later than they were supposed to, and at this time last summer they still didn't believe me that I don't have a penis."

-Edit

That said, I don't even care. Went to Ohio State, so slow administration is like a warm bath to me.

Okay! I'll aim for both :). That way, I can meet your puppy AND take advantage of the ridiculously cheap drinks at rush/division.

Someone in the prep class told me last night that they were told section assignments would be out today. I won't hold my breath, but it would be nice to know.

The NU-sponsored prep class that's meeting this week, I guess the faculty/admin person teaching it told them sections would be out today. I don't doubt that this was said, but it also doesn't guarantee that it will actually happen, unfortunately. It's a Friday afternoon on a beautiful day before the Air and Water Show, after all...
