NO KIDDING SORRY

I have no clue? Usually just the president, deans, etc. If they have a special speaker this year I have not been made aware of that.

If I take a class that meets the Humanities and Language requirement, I can only use it for one of the requirements right?

I was looking at the orientation schedule and it says bring a Federal Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) Form,Federal (W-4) tax formState (M-4) tax form, Original valid forms of identification, and A photocopy of your original forms of identification to the first work study meeting? Thought all you had to bring was a state ID and maybe SS card.

You’re gonna be filling out those complicated-sounding tax forms. They will provide them at the meeting. You’ll need ID, a photocopy of your ID, and a pen. (photocopying: library circulation desk can help you with that)

Add/Drop isn’t open ‘til today. Try again in the afternoon, if you tried in the wee hours of morning.

will there be little wheelbarrows or student helpers or anything to help domestic students move in tomorrow or are we on our own?

There’ll be a team of highly-caffeinated Orientation Leaders in bright blue tee-shirts stationed at each dorm all day long to help you. They’re like wheelbarrows, but they run on coffee and 5-minute chair massages and free pizza. Treat them kindly. They are there to help you.

Is networking important at MoHo or at any college? I feel like some people go overboard with it.
β—₯

It’s important at both MHC and other colleges, of course. Some people might go overboard or get a little too zealous in their desire to get ahead and not focus on their time at MHC or the relationships they can form with peers rather than with potential investors and future opportunities, but I think it’s still important to realize that you’re attending college with the goal of finding a career that will benefit you and the world around you, and that requires the ‘getting to know’ that can be so dreary at times.

Does it matter what language you take? I heard college is supposed to where you 'find yourself' and take classes that interest you, but at the same time, I don't want to struggle with a class.

Not really. It’s good to challenge yourself, but continuing on in a language you already have experience with is alright by my (and everyone else’s) book. If something interests you and you think you can handle it, take it. If not, maybe wait a year and try again or take something simpler.
