New Student Orientation at the Residency

Dear Incoming MFA Students,

I look forward to meeting you all at the New Student Orientation session at 4pm on Saturday, July 30. This session will provide you with useful information about the residency week and about the fall semester, which begins immediately with the conclusion of the residency. We will talk about your relationships with your mentors, your syllabus composition, work and evaluation expectations, and any other program-related issues you would like to discuss. So come prepared with questions. As I'm sure you've seen on the schedule, there will be a separate session Sunday afternoon to orient you toward Blackboard and your various WestConn computer accounts.

The orientation session on the 30th will be in the Westside Classroom building, room 241. We will use two buildings on the Westside campus--the Westside Campus Center is the building you will see at the top of the hill with the clock on the front, and the Westside Classroom Building is the red-brick ziggurat-inspired building behind the campus center.

"Syllabus composition" is a handy addition to this talk!
