Departmental Orientations on 23 August


The English Department will hold a number of orientations for both students and faculty this week. The departments events kick off Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 9:00 in COBA 255 with Graduate Student Orientation. Breakfast will be available at 9:00, and FYW Instructors will have breakfast available at the same time, though their orientation runs from 10:00- Noon in COBA 255. At noon, all those who reserved a space for lunch earlier will head over to the lobby outside Nedderman 100. Lunch will take place from Noon until 1:00. From 1:00 until 3:00 in Nedderman 100, a required orientation for new instructors in upper-level courses (though everyone is welcome, including FYW instructors who also teach upper-level ENGL classes). At 3:00 in Nedderman 100 will be a workshop on displaying information. There were to be two other workshops starting at 3:00, but only a couple people signed up for those, so we cancelled those for Tuesday, and will plan to run them later in the semester.
