Midyear Autumn Email #6: Final Email Before Orientation (January 18, 2013)
Dear midyear students:
Today's email is our last communication to you before we welcome you in person at the TVRUE Welcome Meeting (REQUIRED) this Sunday, January 20, 2:00 p.m. in Salomon 001 (on the college green).
We've attached the bios of your Transfer Counselors once again so you can put some faces to their names. Remember that they were once in your shoes, having transferred to Brown from another college or university. They are eager to greet you and to help guide your transition to Brown throughout the semester.
Please be sure to visit the Transfer, Visiting, and Resumed Undergraduate Education (T/V/RUE) Orientation Schedule, posted on the Orientation website. When you arrive on campus, head to the Residential Life Office to pick up your keys and an arrival packet; this packet includes important information on the dates/times/locations of certain meetings/events that are part of your personal orientation schedule. Locate and carefully review the BLUE SHEET with important personalized information for you, such as the name of your faculty advisor (who will have read your letter of introduction), the time of your first advising meeting with an academic dean, and the number of transfer credits we have processed for you (which may not include credits from the fall if we have not received your final transcript).
Our last bit of business, an important one, is to inform you about basic safety and University expectations as you transition into the Brown community. Please review the attached document carefully.
Good luck with your travels and see you very soon!
Your TVRUE deans,
Dean Maitrayee Bhattacharyya and Dean Besenia Rodriguez
