ACE Orientations

The new semester is right around the corner!

We will provide a light breakfast and lunch both days.

What to bring:

  • Notebook, iPad, or lightweight laptop for taking notes. If you have a laptop, please bring it at least on the second day. We will need to have some in the room for an activity.
  • Water bottles: We will have coffee and tea (and later tea and lemonade.) If you have special things you like to drink, including water, please bring these. We will have access to water for refilling your water bottle, though.
  • Dress comfortably (but not sweats) Thursday. We’ll be taking a walk if the weather is nice, so be sure and wear walking shoes.
  • Dress a little nicer on Friday. We’ll be lunching with faculty and IU Administration, so you’ll want to dress a little nicer that day.
  • Don’t bring a lot of stuff. We’ll be changing locations on the first day, and in the meantime, taking that walk I mention above. You don’t want to have to drag a bunch of stuff all over town!

You can use your IU login to use Lynda.com, which you can search for from www.iub.edu. Lynda.com offers tutorials on these and many more.
