From Gatwick, you can buy a Thameslink ticket from the airport and hop on a direct train to Luton (about an hour IIRC). The trains run directly from the airport, so it's quite convenient. You can also go to www.nationalexpress.com to book a bus ticket online.

I'm leaving the 23rd of Aug and heading into Hethrow. From there, I'm just going to chill in London until orientation I guess.

When are you guys planning on coming back? I got a departure date of Dec 13th.

rangness
08-10-2004, 09:36 PM
wow.....the 13th??? i called them and they told us that we would be done with finals on the 17th (friday).

i'm travelling with two big suitcases and a travel bag. i was going to take the bus. can i buy the bus ticket when i get there or do i have to buy it in advance?

curious_george
08-11-2004, 09:25 AM
Are you 100% sure its the 17th? I have been told on two seperate occasions that everything is done by the 13th.

I'm going to call and post in a few.

I wanted to add that if you're traveling light (w/ up to 2 bags) then I would recommend the train since space is limited. However, if you have a lot luggage to haul around, the bus might be better. If you plan on going by train, please make sure you check the time tables on their website for any scheduled maintenance work.

http://www.thameslink.co.uk/

I do recommend that you get off at Luton Airport Parkway since it has lifts (elevators) and it is convenient for the traveler. The only thing you need to have is a number to call a taxi if they are not available. These numbers are available on our website. Taxis are usually available at Luton Airport Parkway but not all the time. If you have a cell phone, that makes it even easier.

I got a question,

WHERE and WHEN is the orientation?? ( i know its Friday, but what time?)

That was not listed in my welcome kit.


I'd appreciate this info as I'm in London right now and just waiting for Friday....also, Monday there are no classes right? School will start on Tues correct??


Thanks again.

Orientation is held in the Park Square Chambers building in the morning (I believe 9am, hopefully someone else can confirm).
Based on May's "Orientation", it was simply a general meeting to listen to the boss go over some rules/regulations and a chance to register. Not at all what I thought orientation would be (some fun activities would've been nice). Hopefully it's better for the September class.

Cheers

Glad to hear that you made it to London. Congrats.

Orientation will be about 40 -45 minutes, and registration will be about
15 minutes. So, you will be free for the rest of the day. :lol:

Orientation will be in the building across from York House; it's behind the
low white gates. Call York House (administration building) to ask for the
exact time of orientation.

Tuesday will be a light load, mostly introduction stuff. Classes are from
9am- 4pm Monday to Friday in the SAME room (except for labs). :D
No class on this coming Monday because of Bank Holiday.

anyone in the know?

ansgenius

I'd say there were like 70 or so new students. I don't know how many first semesters there will be because they herded everyone into the same room i.e. first semesters, pre meds, and transfers. Also, not everyone is here yet. I know of a few people who couldn't make it to orientation. You all can pop into the first semester room and do a head count if you really want to.

Sounds like a medium size class for September.
We'll pop in to see your class.

It's too bad that StChris is lack of Big Brothers and Big Sisters
Programs to guide the newbies.

Thanks for the info.

I also recommend students start using the

So I would estimate a 1st semester class of around 50-60 based on a few more heads popping in the first week of school.
How was 'orientation'? Same old "laying down the rules" orientation we've had in the past?

ansgenius
08-29-2004, 02:35 PM
Yup, same ol' laying down the rules, "I will walk your *** to the train station" orientation. Pretty standard from my experiences. It might be slightly bigger than 50-60 cause I've met a lot of people who missed orientation. Just pop in and see for yourself. And while you pop in, offer to become one of our big brothers or big sisters. For myself, I randomly ask people "will you be my new daddy or mommy?". People typically don't respond well to that, but I have found a lot of upperclassmen more than willing to help me out if I have problems.

drzed
08-29-2004, 03:10 PM
You'll find the upper semester students to be of GREAT help, especially for the first several weeks. Great group of people (for the most part)!

Cool, if you find a new asian kid you haven't seen before stressing out in the library everyday, that'll be me. Feel free to slap me upside the head or pass me a brown paper bag to breathe into. Or better yet, just hook me up with some liquor or weed, or some kind of combination of both, leed or wiquor.

That typifies about 60% of the St. Chris pop. so that won't help very much in locating you :D

It will be cheaper to get a group of 4 so you can take advantage of the group rate (5.35/person last term). With the Young Persons Rail Card, you get 33% off the regular price, which I believe worked out to 7.50-8.00 pounds (don't remember exactly).

Get a group of 4 set now so that you don't have to worry about finding 3 other peeps every week.
