So before chapter today, one of my friends told me that there were 15 people from California. I was like, how did you know that?!?!?!
Apparently, there’s a website that Case has that tracks where everyone is from. You can find it by going to case.edu and searching for “Where in the World 2015” or, if you’re lazy, click on this link. I was mind blown! Since I’m from pretty far away, I’m always on the lookout from people near my hometown on the off chance that we have mutual friends.
Any who, why is this important for you as a Freshmen? Well, it’s that time of the year to go online and start selecting where you live and who you live with. I resorted to the Facebook group by filling out a brief questionnaire and looking at other potential roommates. But that was when I didn’t know about this awesome website. Now, you can look on the map, see who is near you, and message them to see if you can meet up over a cup of coffee and see if you would want to room together. Well that’s what I would have done if I knew this existed.
But yeah.. Class of 2015 you guys should be pumped! Orientation is just around the corner, and you’re going to be here before you know it. Orientation and welcome days are probably the best days you’ll remember from your freshmen year. You’ll meet more people than you can remember, and the days will past in a heartbeat. Cherish the time you have now because once you set foot in college, life will seem to be on steroids, and you’ll be in a graduation cap and gown before you know it.
If you're still unsure about coming to Case, here are a few photos to familiarize yourself with the campus. I also highly encourage you to plan an overnight stay. There's one left: April 21-22nd. Go to http://admission.case.edu/visit/options.aspx to schedule it.
The campus is actually quite pretty during sunset, but don't take my words (or photos for that matter) for it. Come experience it for yourself!
