The contrast between pre-Orientation Fletcher and Orientation Fletcher is always amazing. We go from the quietest of quiet weeks of summer to super busy, with all 250-ish new students in the Hall of Flags at once. Starting today, with a full day’s Fletcher experience behind them, the new students will be coming and going through the building, creating a sense of a normal rhythm. Of course, it won’t really be normal until the continuing students return next week. That’s when the buzz temporarily turns to a roar.
And the Admissions Office is fully staffed now, for the first time since April. Katherine, Liz, and Christine are adapting to Fletcher at a rapid survival pace, just ahead of the students who arrived yesterday when they did. (Formal intros to follow.)
