stern's day out

the us open of tenis for stern orientation.

yes, we saw kim clijsters (who would eventually win the whole tournament) nbd.

as part of stern's orientation, they took us to the us open of tennis. i'm not really sure why they did this but it was awesome. we took the subway from nyu to the venue in queens, ny. we were allowed to split up and do whatever we wanted once there. a few friends and i watched a few matches and then returned home around 5 pm.

presidential welcome at madison square garden

nyu freshman commencement. nbd.

as part of the first day of freshman orientation, nyu rented out madison square garden (!) for the welcome speech given by president john sexton. apparently, this was the only time the entire freshman class (about 7,000 kids) will be together besides graduation. pretty cool.

2nd day

fake michael jackson and some obama health care rally. nbd.

today, my dad and I walked around and did some last minute shopping. we went to the nyu book store and got all my books for the first semester. then we went up to the times square area again and i got a haircut (which is way too short).
