Bulldog Days is off to an awesome start! We just came back from the Welcome Showcase, which featured what Jeff Brenzel, the Dean of Undergraduate Admissions, called “a taste of Yale.” This meant everything from a beat-boxing cellist to an opera singer, or even hip hop from Rhythmic Blue and three of Yale’s finest a cappella groups.
We are currently blogging from Commons Dining Hall, the Hogwarts-style dining hall on campus, at the Ice Cream Social! We had a chance to learn about the Freshman Pre-Orientation Trips, which include FOOT (Freshman Outdoor Orientation Trips program), Harvest, OIS (Orientation for International Students), and Cultural Connections.
…and boy were we surprised when the Yale Precision Marching Band made a surprise appearance just as students were heading out to have a debate with the Yale Political Union (YPU) and Stanley McChrystal (right across the street in SSS).
Stay tuned for some awesome pictures and video!
