Because most of you are coming from far away, you may wonder about what you will need to bring with you. To make things a bit easier, be aware that through our graduate students office, there will be two scheduled shopping trips to a nearby mall, with bus transportation provided, on August 25 and August 26. Buses will leave from campus at 5 pm. In upcoming Newsletters, we’ll tell you more about some events to look forward to. In the meantime, keep checking our website.
