I Don't Know Anyone at National - What Now?

Hey Everyone, 

The MIDTERMS have FINALLY ended!!!! And the first thing I did was pass out...and when I woke up, I felt like my brain resembled more of the puddies from Power Rangers than the thing we dissected in Trimester 2 neuroanatomy. (Yeah, I just put a Power Ranger analogy in a med school blog, you're welcome. :)  Eventually reality came back and this post was finished.

Me in the cab going to St. Patty's in Wrigleyville.

A question came via email last weekend and I'd like to help you (what else am I supposed to do?). Since most of the time more than just the person who emailed me needs the answer, I open it up to a little blog action.

Q: "I'm entering NUHS in August and I don't have a place to stay or a roommate and I don't know anyone there! What would recommend?" 

A: Classic Question! Have No Worries. Unless you plan on living under a rock and sitting in the corner of class with a scowl on your face (no offense if that's your style;) you will meet plenty of friends at National. However, if you are looking for a roommate before you start, you either have to start creepin' on Facebook (Twitter, if you're into that kind of thing) or email Pam in Housing. I'd recommend the later. Pam Thomas* has been fantastic in sorting out housing arrangements and getting you set up on campus. If you have your heart set for off-campus living, there are A LOT of apartments within 1 mile of campus. Google and your telephone will help narrow your list.

Tri Games

On a side note, Tri Games is this Friday and dodge ball is the game of choice! Search my old posts for an explanation of past Tri Games. I've been practicing dodging wrenches all week at Average Joe's Gym. Ya, I'm ready. 

Talk to y'all next week,
