It’s that time of year again: registration. For me, a first-semester freshman, registration brings back memories of the following: frantically—and unsuccessfully—trying to log in to Banner, coming to the sad realization that the classes I wanted were full after I had finally connected to the Internet, and sending out pathetic, desperate emails to professors that I had never spoken to before. If this sounds familiar to you, don’t worry. This semester, Meiklejohns are here to hold our hands throughout the process.
Tonight, the Meiklejohns are holding a special pre-registration event called “Meiks in the Unit” to answer any last minute questions we freshmen might have. The Meiks will be set up in the Arnold and Mo-Champ lounges from 7-9 p.m. to help you handle the imminent doom of pre-registration. It’s a great opportunity to talk to people who have gone through the hellish experience of registration before. The Meiks who will be present are also well-versed in a wide range of subjects, so don’t think you won’t find any help if you have a unique concentration!
Huge bonus: they are serving free KABOB AND CURRY. If any freshman (or human) is unaware of this fine establishment, know that Kabob and Curry is a delicious restaurant Thayer. Yelp gives it 4 out of 5 stars. Need I say more? (Tips for pre-reg after the jump.)
If you’re unable to attend Meiks in the Unit, here are some last minute reminders for pre-registration:
- Log in early. Pre-registration begins on FRIDAY at 8 a.m.! Don’t forget it… or else you’ll log in at night and to find that your top-choice class is already full.
- Ethernet cables can be your friend. We’ve already seen how temperamental Brown-Secure can be, so why take any chances?
- Don’t lose your registration code. You should have received a code from your advisor that allows you to register. Don’t lose it.
- Pray to the Brown Internet gods. Sacrifices are not out of the question.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
