Don't forget to vote
by Student Life

“As incoming freshmen, you have been and will be faced with a number of important, tough decisions over the course of the summer and fall. Which meal plan should you sign up for?

Oh…and who do you want to be the next President of the United States?”

A professor's top ten hints for acing college
by Student Life

Jul 02, 2008
“When Student Life asked me to provide advice for incoming students, I wanted to make sure that I didn't subject you to your first lecture here at Wash. U. So, I thought about how I might advise our 18-year-old son who will also be starting college this fall. I realized that if I got too long-winded, he would quickly turn to his iPod, so I put this advice in a form that's more digestible: a top 10 list. So, here are the top 10 pieces of advice I, as a faculty member, would give to incoming students.”

Embracing the major you never thought you'd choose
by Student Life

Jul 02, 2008
“I'd like to extend a warm welcome to the incoming class of pre-meds-oh excuse me, freshmen. I know, I know, not all of you are pre-meds, and I'll have more to say to the others. But more of you will start as pre-meds than anything else by far, and many of you are making a mistake.”

“Welcome to Washington University. You begin your undergraduate careers at a time of profound institutional reflection and a discussion that-like much of what you will experience in the next four years±will be both specific and abstract. This announcement, then, is a welcome both into a community of scholars and into an exciting conversation about the very nature and purpose of that community.”

Find friends doing what you love

The importance of criticism
by Student Life

Jul 02, 2008
“It's easy to forget how important a disparaging voice can be. Without the snarl of incredulous criticism, we might skip through life listening happily to Duran Duran or enjoying the occasional Uwe Bol film. No, it's lucky you've got us, your fault-finding and unsympathetic critics here at Cadenza.”

“Located in University City, only a short walk from the South 40, the Delmar Loop is a great place to spend an early autumn afternoon or evening. There are countless things to do on this one street, including seeing a movie, shopping, or going to a concert.”
