Summer Email #4: Summer Reading and Letter to Your Advisor (July 20, 2012)
Dear incoming Transfer and Visiting students,
By now, we hope you have received a mailing from Brown including Charles Rappleye's book Sons of Providence, and the summer academic planning booklet Planning Your Liberal Education. If you have not, please let us know. We hope you are noting upcoming deadlines, both required and optional (such as the Fall Visual Arts 0100 lottery). These are posted on the Transfer, Visiting, RUE Orientation website.
* Summer Reading and Letter to your Advisor *
Once you've read Sons of Providence, please write a letter to your academic advisor using the book as a starting point for introducing yourself. Introduce yourself and reflect on your upcoming time at Brown - your hopes, your uncertainties, and your aspirations. If you did not receive Sons of Providence, you must still write to your advisor.If you are entering in September, you must submit your letter by August 7 so that we can make sure your advisor gets it before your first advising appointment. Submit your letter electronically here. Those of you entering in January will have until January 3.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us! We look forward to welcoming you personally when Orientation begins (in September if you are joining us in the fall, or in January if you are joining us mid-year)!
