The rest of last week was pretty uneventful. I had several orientation events scattered over Tuesday and Wednesday (computer orientation, fabrication lab safety training, and digital fabrication lab orientation). The highlight of the orientation related stuff was probably attending the Phillies game on Wednesday evening. They were playing the Mets in a battle for first place in the NL east. Unfortunately the Phillies lost, but I was able to meet several fellow new PennDesign students.
On Friday afternoon, there was a PennDesign happy hour in Meyerson Hall. There was a variety of beers, wines, and foods on offer. I was hoping that at least a few members of the faculty would be around, but no such look. However, I was able to meet several more fellow students including a fellow UF grad.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) is the end of orientation. It starts off with coffee and check in, followed by departmental orientation, lunch with the dean, and then financial aid and academic advising. Although I won't be taking a studio, I'll try to get some information on the studios that are being offered this semester. The first day of classes is on Wednesday, although my first class won't be until Thursday.
This last image is for Liberty Bell. I thought that it might bring back some good Philly memories!
