A message from Dean Nicholas Lewis, Dean of Students.
Dear incoming students,
I hope this message finds you well and in hopeful expectation for your arrival on campus in just under three weeks.
Many of you have been inquiring about the schedule for Before the Fall Orientation (BTFO). Well, here it is…hot off the press! (Just click on the blue letters.) The incoming class of BTFO will be the first to experience our newly redesigned orientation program. Each day has been structured to welcome and introduce you to the YDS community, and to meaningfully ground you in the relationships and resources that will serve to support you through your time here.
Please know that this document is subject to change over the next couple weeks. That being said, we will be sending out a more current version on the Monday before BTFO. So please feel free to review this document to get a good sense of the shape of the orientation, but as in all things, keep an open mind and a flexible spirit and all will be well.
We look forward to welcoming you on the Quad bright and early on Wednesday, August 23rd. See you soon!
All my best,
