Orientation week has begun at Tech. I've met most of our new Social Science majors and some of the transfer students. The "old" ones are filtering back into town for the start of classes on Monday.
This semester I've got public international law, a first year seminar on Great Trials in History, Orientation to the Social Sciences (mostly for advising and getting them to plan out their four years to a degree), and Senior Assessment (to make sure the paper work is done for the graduating students and to help them with grad school/job letters). Busy, especially since I'm working on revising a book and will have a few students to advise on competitive scholarships (at least two for Fulbright!).
So, it begins again. It's my 19th Fall semester at Michigan Tech.
