Summer Email #4

July 20th, 2017

Dear incoming Transfer and RUE students:

This email provides information on transfer credit processing and one important deadline.

Transfer Credit

In the next few weeks, we will process transfer credits for transfer students. Your internal academic record, to which you have electronic access, will indicate how many transfer credits you have been awarded by the end of July. At that time, if you feel an error has been made, please let us know. If we have not received your transfer credit form and final transcript(s), you should send these immediately to the Admission Office.

Summer Reading

By now, we hope you have received the First Readings book, The Tsar of Love and Techno, and the summer academic planning booklet, Planning Your Liberal Education. If you haven't yet done so, take some time to read the book and write a letter to your seminar leader. Visit the First Readings website to explore the resources put together by the Brown librarians.

Summer Writing Assignments: Letter to Your Advisor and Letter to Your First Readings Seminar Leader

Before you arrive at Brown, you’ll need to complete two summer writing assignments. Submit both assignments no later than August 15 by visiting ASK, clicking “Incoming Students,” and selecting the “Orientation” tab.

· The first is a brief letter of self-introduction to your advisor. Since you won’t yet know who your advisor will be, feel free to use a general greeting. This letter is an opportunity to tell your advisor something about yourself and your goals for the coming years.

· The second is a response essay to the First Readings selection, The Tsar of Love and Techno. A description of the assignment is included in the Planning Your Liberal Education packet. You will participate in a discussion about this reading during Orientation; your response essay serves as your initial contribution to the discussion.

Please submit your response to the book and your letter to your advisor by August 15, through ASK.

If you do not receive the mailing which includes Planning Your Liberal Education by July 27, please email transferdeans@brown.edu to let us know, and be assured that all materials will soon be posted on the TVR Orientation website. 

Best regards,

Dean Maitrayee Bhattacharyya and Dean Julie Lee
