Dear incoming students,
The countdown is on! Just a few short weeks stand between you and Opening Day… Are you pumped yet?! I know I am.
My name is Sandra Town, and I’m the 2015-2016 President of the Law Students’ Society. I’m really excited to meet you this fall, and get to know you as the year goes on. If you want to find me on September 8, just follow the laugh – I’ve been told it’s pretty noticeable… If you want to know a little bit more about me in the meantime (or the rest of the rather fabulous LSS Executive) check out the bios listed on the website.
I can honestly say that the decision to come to UVic Law was one of the best decisions I’ve made. You’re about to join a supportive community of intelligent, driven people AND you get to live on the west coast. That means long walks by the ocean, cherry trees blooming in February, and the sight of deer grazing serenely outside your classroom window as you figure out whether or not you can be falsely imprisoned by a herd of cows.*
But before you head on to campus, I hope you all get the chance to enjoy what’s left of your summer. My advice is to take some time to recharge before the beginning of the school year. Law School has been amazing, but it has also had its challenging moments – so sneak in that last hangout with a friend, read a good book, enjoy that second scoop of ice-cream… Whatever it is that you love!
Orientation is going to be a blast! We’ve got a stellar two weeks planned for you, giving you an opportunity to socialize outside of school, and explore parts of the city to boot. And that’s just the first two weeks! Before you know it you’ll have made new friends, gotten to know your profs, figured out where the best coffee on campus is, and the deer won’t even phase you any more.
So congratulations! Welcome to UVic’s Faculty of Law! We’re so excited to meet you!
Please feel free to drop me a line at any time, I’m available to answer any and all of your questions or just chat if that’s what you need.
See you on the 8th,
*True story – we spent 15 minutes of my torts class trying to figure this one out.
