FSU Orientation Day Two

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Tallahassee, FL 32306

Today was the second of the two-day FSU orientation. I got up early and went to Suwanee Room for breakfast and headed to Askew Student Life Center. There only I attended the talks from the Assoc Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Director of Student Health Services, and Chief of Police. VTS had a separate schedule: breakfast at Fresh Food Company, Academic advising, visiting the advisor and registering for the class.

Finally we headed to the Union Ballroom where we had the Seminole send-off. VTS signed the banner and had lunch at Subway.

We went to the dorm to check out by 1:30 PM and went to the Student Health services for paperwork. Finally we headed home after my work time 5:15 PM.

FSU Orientation Day One

Union Ballroom

Monday, June 3, 2013

Today is the first day of two-day FSU orientation for VTS. Originally, I was not planning to attend it and hence didn’t register myself. Then we all felt it will be beneficial to do so. So I went ahead and paid the registration fees and started to attend the sessions. We started off with welcome message from the Dean of Undergraduate studies which was followed by Family Connection.

In the afternoon we had separate sessions for various academic areas and special interest groups. We attended two sessions and went to the common session. Then after early dinner at Suwanee Room we went for the entertainment portion. I went home early and VTS stayed late at the Wild Wood dorm
