1. Any dress code for orientatiion?
No, except for one or two events that are specifically listed as business casual.
2. Should we bring laptop/backpack for orientation?
3. Are "E and E" guides available on campus or should these be ordered online? (If you suggest any other guides for 1L classes, please advise!)
A few weeks into school one of the student groups (EJF) puts on a fundraiser booksale, this is a great place to pick up guides and even some casebooks for $25 or less. Other than that, the campus bookstore carries stuff, but I recommend buying online or checking them out of the library to save $$.
4. How long is the Rocky Challenge? Will I be embarrassed by an 8:45 mile?
I think the Rocky Challenge is just running up a flight of stairs to the Art Museum. Either way, I don't think 8:45 is anything to be embarrassed about, but I'm no runner.
