Email 16: July 21, 2021
Hello Class of 2024 –
Happy Wednesday! We are T-25 days to the start of Orientation Week and we are excited to see you all!
- Registration – If you haven’t registered for all courses, please complete this task to ensure your charges will be accurate on Campus Connection and before the financial disbursements start on August 17th. The Lawyering Skills information went out last week so make sure you add that too!
- Potentially forgetting the last minute details can be stressful – some things to make sure you have or are aware of before joining us in a few weeks:
- Don’t forget our technology requirements – we’d hate for you to arrive and not be set up for success right away and need to make a run to Best Buy instead. Technology requirements can be found HERE.
- Planning to become a ND resident – don’t forget to go to the DMV for your driver’s license! You must schedule an appointment to get that switched over – don’t fret, you can do that HERE.
- Books – oh the books…Purchasing books always seems to be difficult between weird ISBN numbers and “out of stock” notices. I reached out to Karmen, the amazing Faculty Administrative Assistant, to help a student and she gave such great advice that I snagged the information and attached it in the email. If you can’t find a book or want to purchase sooner rather than later, it may be the best option to go through the publisher.
- U Card – don’t forget to fill out the form for the U Card and have it sent to the law school for ease! 😊
- Finally, it’s no secret that North Dakota can get…well, chilly. Okay, cold! It gets cold. If you are coming from a warmer climate, here are some suggestions from someone who is from Minnesota/North Dakota and is always cold:
- Winter coat/jacket – you don’t need to spend a fortune on a quality jacket. I think mine was $80 (it’s been awhile so I’m not exactly sure, but I’m cheap so I can’t imagine it was much more than that). Stores will have all kinds of options for you in multiple price points.
- Boots, gloves & headgear – these are the items that I tend to splurge on. No one likes cold fingers, ears, or feet. Don’t be afraid of how you’ll look either, because we all dress cozy when it’s snowy and colder.
- Layers – layer up and you’ll stay warm. And if you get too warm, you can remove a layer.
- I was asked to pass along information about the Carlson Caspers 1L Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship for incoming students. The deadline is July 31, 2021. If you are eligible to apply, you should be able to click on the links in the PDF. The firms contact information is included as well.
- Bookstore Hours - Effective August 9, 2021, the Bookstore will be open from 8:00am – 6:00pm on Monday-Saturday. And Sunday, August 22nd and 29th, the hours are 8:00am – 6:00pm
- Orientation Week – The orientation schedule has been attached. Here is a quick note about “check-in”:
- Orientation Check-In is at the law school on Monday, August 16th in the Office of Student Life from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Check-in is a “drop-in” format allowing us to give you materials for the week and note your attendance. Students can check-in as needed allowing for any last-minute questions to get answered, see the law school, checkout a locker etc. If you don't have any questions prior to the start of the first session, please allow time to check-in to receive materials before proceeding to the session. International students can check in between 8:30-9:00 a.m. to arrive at their first session by 9:00 a.m. There is a half hour break in-between the International Center presentation and the next session to get questions answered, checkout a locker, etc. if you were not able to before 9:00 a.m.
