Things to do when you get here

This page is meant to be a comprehensive list of all the little things that first year students need to do when they arrive in order to get organized and to become a part of the community. It is broken down into general things that all students should do, as well as things that are specific to each area. Some of these will be done for you automatically, but some will not, so it's your responsibility to make sure everything gets done. This page should help you do that.
