A Letter from Your Head Orientation Counselors
Congratulations and welcome to Carnegie Mellon!
You will be joining us on Carnegie Mellon’s campus as our newest, brightest first-year class. We, the seven Head Orientation Counselors, have been working hard to make Orientation 2015 one of the most enjoyable and welcoming weeks of your life at Carnegie Mellon. Along with the Orientation Leaders and Orientation Counselors, we will be here to guide you across the bridge that connects your past experiences to new and exciting ones that you’ll have during your college experience! These upcoming years are filled with untapped potential, and your transformative journey begins here. The best part about this adventure is that while you can take any path across the bridge you choose to build, you will always have the support of others to make the journey everything you want it to be. Don’t be afraid to be yourself; the people here are what make this place as special as it is, so throw yourself into the diverse mix of backgrounds, personalities, and cultures that comprise our expansive, welcoming community. As you build the bridge that will shape your time in the Carnegie Mellon community, there may be unexpected bumps in the road that you would have never predicted. But learning how to make the most of these situations will equip you with the skills to adapt and deal with a variety of scenarios. You may be feeling many emotions right now as you leave the familiar and enter the unfamiliar, but just keep this in mind: You can build your bridge to any destination you want, and it all begins here at Orientation 2015.
We are so excited to meet you!
With all our Tartan love,
Your 2015 Head Orientation Counselors
