Well I had my first day of orientation. It went well, a bit repetitive as every talk I went to repeated some of the material. But in the end I found out that "they are very helpful, and if I'm having any difficulties I can just see someone" So I suppose that is rather comforting.
They have started up a mentoring program, so I will be assigned a mentor who is currently under taking there second year of Uni. I can use my mentor to answer my questions that I may not want to ask, my tutor or fellow students. It is not compulsory to participate, but I will.
I'm back today, for more talks, tours and physically find my class locations for next week.
