    I recieved the orientation packet for Des Moines a little while ago and I was wondering if anyone was planning on going to the AAA baseball game. I heard it is a ton of fun from present first year students. I just wanted to get to know some names before I get there so I am not totally alone [​IMG]

    Thanks

    I declined the game for the simple reason that it appeared to be a long day and I didn't think I would enjoy a game with all new faces. That's just me. I think my time will be better spent getting settled in as I am not moving down until the weekend before.

    Hey...what else is on the schedule for orientation...does it sound like a lot of boring stuff - or more fun, casual, get-ta-know-ya type of things...??

    I have heard something about an underground keg party! I guess that is one way to break the ice and make a fool of ourselves.

    Thanks for all the replies! I will try to answer some of the questions asked.

    Alpha1phi: I got a huge packet on housing, physicals, orientation, etc. about two weeks ago. It had a booklet on the various types of housing in and near Des Moines as well as a roommate matching form in which the school can help pair you up with someone based on your response to a seris of questions. Things like are you a smoker - have pets - are you a 'clean' preson - were all considered. I have been to Des Moines twice to find a place so I know some of the places that seemed nice and reasonably priced. If you want to hear about them, let me know - my e-mail is [email protected]ial.com
    Oh, I went to school in River Falls (near the twin cities) but I am from Mayville WI.
    Other stuff on the schedule were things like pictures, white coat measurements, honor code, insurance, financial aid, health forms - ya know the standard required stuff. As for social things, they had the baseball game, picnics, "campus clubs" presentations, things like that.

    Thanks everyone.
    I will see you all in August!! Man this summer is just flying by.

    Stasch

    PS Beth, where are you from??
