 +===== Notes about this years orientation planning =====
 +This year, only one first year will be arriving in August. Two will be here already, and the last won't be in town until the semester has already started. Plus, two of our mentors will be out of town for orientation,​ and the chair is unavailable. Finally, one of the students is a visiting student (and therefore doesn'​t care about residency, health insurance, etc). In light of all this, it might be a good idea to shorten the orientation to the afternoon only, and avoid altogether some of the topics we usually address. ​
