Class of 2015 Welcome Letter
Dear Butler Class of 2015:
Welcome back to Princeton! I trust you all had productive summers and that you are excited about beginning your junior year. As you know, the overall advising function for all four classes belongs to the residential colleges, whether you live in Butler or in upperclass housing. Regardless of where you call home on campus, Butler College will therefore remain an important part of your life at Princeton through your graduation.
Make sure to come in to see me or Butler's Director of Studies, Dr. Matthew Lazen (firstname.lastname@example.org), this year for any of the following reasons:
* to change your major or your degree concentration;
* to get an extension on your independent work (JP);
* to get an extension to complete work that is due on Dean's Date;
* if you plan to take a summer course and need preapproval for Princeton degree credit;
* if you are seeking permission to enroll in a graduate course;
* if you are experiencing general academic difficulties and need help.
DISTRIBUTION AREA REQUIREMENTS: Please check your degree progress report to see where you stand with respect to the completion of distribution area requirements. As senior year is a bad time to discover that you need, for example, to fulfill a final ST course, take a look NOW and let me know if there appears to be a problem. Engineers who discover a problem with their BSE requirements should check with Dean Bogucki immediately. Drop/Add opened for all students this morning on SCORE, and ends on September 24th. Be sure to inform your departmental adviser of any changes you are making in your program.
For advice on course selection in your major, and for advice on fulfilling your departmental requirements and for guidance on independent work, you will be seeing your Departmental Representative in your home department.
If you are living in Butler, I look forward to seeing you often around Wu. If you are in upperclass housing, I am very much looking forward to continuing our relationship as you return to the college for meals (remember, you all have 2 free meals per week!). Please come up to me and say hello when you see me in the Wu dining hall.
We are always looking for new ways to integrate upperclassmen into residential college life through programming. With all of our great common spaces, there should be many opportunities for you to participate. Do not hesitate to contact us with possible programming ideas.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and always feel free to make an appointment to see me at the number listed below.
Here’s to a great year!
