It’s a beautiful day today! Clear blue skies and cool dry air. Quite the contrast from yesterday’s wet and windy weather, when Hurricane Irene blew through. The campus seems to have escaped with not much more than downed tree branches. With clean-up already underway, the storm will soon be just a memory.
The timing for the storm was definitely sub-optimal for Fletcher, but despite canceled flights and suspended train service, a remarkable number of new students managed to make their way into town. Info packets in hand, they streamed into ASEAN Auditorium at 9:00, and are now midway through their first morning of Orientation. I’ve heard that about 40 would-be-Orientees have contacted the Registrar’s Office to say they’ll arrive late because of storm delays. I hope that most will be at Fletcher within the next day or so — Orientation is a time to gather nuts-and-bolts information about the School, but it’s also a great opportunity to meet classmates and start the academic year feeling like part of a community.
