I feel like I'm 18 again...

...but not in a good way. I have orientation at the U tomorrow. I can't even tell you how many hours I spent up there in high school for MUN and other things. I spent more time in the Marriott library than I did in the library at my own school! Seriously! I also know where the important things are- Huntsman Center, Rice-Eccles stadium. To add insult to injury, I already attended orientation in 1999, when I was enrolled before I received my mission call to leave in the middle of the semester. I was informed they "expire" after two years. My advisor said otherwise, but bless her extremely young heart, she was mistaken.

I appreciate their desire to help me have a good experience there, but I feel like such a nerd having to through it again. What are they going to do, help me find my classes? They are all online and I obviously found my computer unassisted! Any classes I do have to take on campus will all be in the FCS building, where I have already met with my academic advisor, so I'm OK finding that, too, thanks!

The thing that bugs me the most is that it will cost me $70 for the privilege of attending. I can't register unless I go, but they sent me a postcard thanking me for "accepting their invitation to attend Orientation." I will, however, be the proud owner of a General Catalog. Who knew they even still printed those out? Also included: Undergraduate bulletin and Student Resource Guide, AND parking validation!

What a deal! How nice of them to let you pay for all of that.

OK, so it wasn't as bad as I feared. I wasn't the oldest person in the room and the campus tour wasn't mandatory. Plus I scored a new U of U shirt. Alas, there was no parking valadation, as it was Satruday and it was free to park...

I never when to orientation when I went back. I guess I missed out on the U of U shirt!

Oh how kind of them! Glad it went over okay though.

Best of luck, it is so worth it.
