Well I stayed at the BC Guesthouse, which was nice ... for a dorm. I haven't slept on one of those "Twin XL" beds in several years, especially without an egg crate, and I subsequently I had two very terrible nights of sleep ... but other than that it was a great weekend.
The coffee reception was pretty cool, the head of the alumni association gave a speech and the Dean of students gave us some info. One of the best things she said was that we shouldn't worry if we haven't applied for our loans yet, and that when our FinAid info was verified (over the next few weeks) we would get more info on exactly hat we needed to do to get the money to BC. The Alumni assoc gave us some pretty nice travel coffee mugs too.
So yeah, then I went over to the housing fair. It was less crowded than I thought it would be, and finding roommates was surprisingly easy ... there were just tables set up where people were sitting around talking. It didn't take long till three people walked up to me and we decided to get a 4 bedroom. A bunch of people also hunted alone, hoping to find roommates in the next few weeks ... there are a few of these listings on the facebook group right now.
Speaking of the facebook group, I have to say there was a humorous amount of people admitting they knew details about various peoples' lives because of rampant facebook stalking.
Friday night we went to the apartment of one of our fellow incoming students (who is actually going to be one of my roommates in the fall) and had a nice BBQ. A ton of people turned out, we drank some beers, and had spirited arguments about whether it was more proper to call it "beer pong" or "beirut" ... and then headed to some bar downtown that was overpriced and touristy but still pretty fun.
Haven't heard back any reports on the beer marathon but I imagine it was quite the experience.
Anyways I met a ton of people this weekend and had a blast. Everyone seemed really cool, it got me real excited for school.
