Orientation started yesterday for a fresh crop of new students — a small group of Januarians. A student years ago coined our term for midyear additions to Fletcher, and it has stuck ever since. The Januarians will have three days of Orientation — a compressed version of the week of activities that precedes the start of classes for new students in September. (No special name for those students, beyond “Almost Everybody.”)
Newbies or not, it’s still very quiet around here. And while the Januarians may have arrived, most continuing students will be leaving town for several days of research and networking on the New York Career Trip organized by the Office of Career Services.
Normal Fletcher life will resume on Tuesday. Of course, normal life for most of Fletcher coincides with our zaniness, as we receive and compile applications for September enrollment.
