Today was my group interviews for freshman orientation leaders! I thought it went pretty well. I met some new friends today and it was a great preview to this summer if I get the job. Tomorrow, I have my personal interview for the job. Wish me luck!
Last nightís hockey game was awesome. UML defeated Providence 4-0. UML is only about 2 point from 3rd place in Hockey East. Even after some struggles throughout the season, UML still had a good overall season. Hopefully they can stay hot for the rest of the season and postseason!
My mind is pretty focused on the freshman orientation leader job, so I really do not have much else to talk about. I promise to let you all know how tomorrow goes! I should find out whether I got the job or not by Friday! Talk to you all soon!
This has been a great long weekend so far! After my class yesterday, I decided to go home for a couple nights. Then, at around five, I get a text message from my friends and they decided to go to the hockey game. Iím really glad I decided to go back to Lowell to watch the game. UML won 4-1 over BC! This is why I love UML. I am able to live on campus and my house is only a quick 15 minute drive away. If I decide to go home for a weekend, I can always go back to campus if something exciting is happening.
I sent in my application to become a Freshman Orientation Leader for this summer. The last weekend of February is called Selection Weekend. I have interviews all weekend. Iíll update you all on how it goes!
This week will be very busy for me because I have 3 tests and a lab report due next Monday. Hopefully Iíll have time to write a quick post on here. If for some reason I canít write this week, I hope you all have a great Valentineís Day and a great week!. Talk to you soon!
Freshman Orientation was awesome! I was able to make new friends, sleep in the resident halls, and even find out my schedule.
At orientation, we were split up into about fourteen groups. (I was in group 7) For most of the orientation, we stayed on South Campus, but we did take a tour of North Campus. Other activities included seeing a skit performed by the orientation leaders and some ice-breaker games. The skit showed all the stereotypes of college and it was actually hilarious. The games were a great way to meet new people and start conversations because it can be a little awkward when you donít know anybody. The best activity was definitely staying in the Campus Recreation Center for a couple hours on the first night. This was where you got to spend a lot of time with your new friends and play basketball, ping pong, pool, and much more! Iím not very good at ping pong, but I did win a game of HORSE so I guess it balances out. There were also some seminars and speeches, but if you pay attention, volunteer, and answer questions, you win prizes so they are still fun. Everyone was really nice and the leaders were helpful and they answered all of our questions. Being able to sleep in a residence hall was a good experience too. We were actually able to order some pizza at a local place at night and there was a huge thunderstorm at about two in the morning, but I love thunderstorms so it just added to the great experience. And we even got our schedule at the end of orientation! I have an 8:30 class four days a week and I think thatís way too early for a college student (just kidding), but I guess I might need some caffeine. The university tried to put the people in your orientation group in the same classes so at least we recognize some faces on the first day of classes.
The two day orientation was a very informative and fun experience. And donít forget to be FIRED UP!
