I had to go to the Binghamton orientation to register for classes etc. Me and my dad woke up at 4 in the morning to get ready and pack up. Soon we were on the road. After around 4 hours of driving, we arrived at Binghamton University.
The View of the Campus from my Dorm
The Binghamton Library Tower: Rod Sterling of the Twilight Zone Went to Binghamton and This Building Inspired His “Tower of Terror.” I Guess He Didn’t Like it Too Much.
I quickly signed in and moved into my temporary dorm room. I then began to run the gauntlet of registration classes and tutorials. I took my math competency test. This I found annoying. I had to remember math I learned almost 3 years ago (not even calculus) so that I could take a calculus class. Fortunately, I studied and passed without any problems. The school revamped its computer system and registration set-up. After a long day of studying and classes, I crashed in my dorm room, which is nowhere near as nice as the one I will be staying in come fall. There was not even a light in this one!
The Dorms in Which I will be Staying
The next day, I woke up early to tour my new dorms in which I will be living over the fall. Very nice. I then quickly registered for my classes, which turned out to be a huge mess. Fortunately, I am a “Binghamton Scholar,” so I have first dibbs on classes. My schedule consists of this:
Chemical Principles (LEC)
Chemical Principles (ACT)
Leadership And Achieving Goals
Peace: A Historical Reflection
Exploring Engineering (LEC)
Exploring Engineering (ACT)
After that I went for a short hike in the nature preserve directly behind my dorm. It is quite extensive and very nice. Finally after another drive lasting 3.5 hours, we arrived home: a fun, tiring, and informative trip.
