These are the types of questions that will be buzzing around campus this week.
So I found this improv-type video online for the freshman’s “NSO” (New Student Orientation)…which led me to think back to my own experiences as a freshman and two tips (for better or worse) which I may be able to impart to the class of 2011 for this week of “integration”.
>When I went to school in the mid 90’s, apparently I was one of a few who had a hologram of a “P” on my Penn card. I asked others whose name I had forgotten if I could see their Penn card to see if they too had that crazy P hologram on their card. Soon enough I remembered “Stacy”s name.
>When I rushed, I brought my friend Lauren to some of the earlier events and had her introduce herself first to the brothers. Once the brothers then mentioned their name to her, I suddenly remembered “Jon” and “Jason’s” names.
Again, these are for better or worse.
