Few things are as exciting as your first few days as a college student. Moving out, moving in, and meeting all of your new friends and classmates is something that many new high school graduates are looking forward to (and maybe dreading, too) this time of year. At Johns Hopkins, you quickly become immersed in the campus community with a student-run Orientation program. It makes the transition easier—including your move-in, which is done mostly by upperclassmen while you get situated. There's a lot to learn, but friendly faces across campus will keep you busy and make sure you know where lunch is.
This year's incoming freshman had a little more excitement than usual, with the arrival of Hurricane Irene to the Baltimore area during their Orientation. By this time, they're all oriented, heading to classes, and settling in for their first exciting year as part of the Blue Jay family.
