ORIENTATION 2011

WELCOME NEW STUDENTS! On behalf of the College of the University of Chicago, we would like to welcome you and your family to the University. You are joining a growing community of 350,000 students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends from around the world who will enrich your education every day. This Orientation Book (O-Book) is your primary resource for the schedule of Orientation activities and meetings. Read through the O-Book carefully to learn about campus resources and activities as well as to ensure that you know when to attend required meetings and when to register for Autumn Quarter classes. You can also access the O-Book online and via mobile device at http://obook.uchicago.edu. On the website, you will be able to download Orientation events to your calendar. Throughout the week-long Orientation program, our staff and over 200 student volunteers (collectively referred to as O-Aides), including Student Directors, Orientation Leaders, International O-Aides, House O-Aides, and Registration O-Aides will be on hand to answer your questions. Our community cares about your success. We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities and resources presented to you this week to use over the course of your education in the College, and learn how they will continue to benefit you for the rest of your life. Orientation is coordinated by the College Programming Office (CPO), located in Harper Memorial 152, at 1116 East 59th Street. (See the map on the back.) If we can help in any way during Orientation, as well as during the academic year, please stop by, call us at 773.702.8616, or e-mail us at college-programming@uchicago.edu. You can also find information at http://orientation.uchicago.edu and at http://my.uchicago.edu in the “My O-Week” tab of the Incoming Student portlet.

DINING DURING O-WEEK In the interest of developing strong House communities, during O-Week students are limited to eating in the dining commons where their House Tables are located.

ABOUT CAMPUS TELEPHONE NUMBERS The majority of telephones on campus, including the ones in your dorm rooms, use the IBX telephone system, with prefixes of 702, 834, or 753. Any campus phone number that begins with these three digits can be reached from other campus phones by dialing only the last five numbers, such as 2.8616 for the College Programming Office (773.702.8616). Most of the phone numbers you will find around campus, including the ones in this booklet, only list the last five numbers. To call from a personal phone line, if the 5-digit extension starts with a 2, you’d dial 773.70 before the extension, if it begins with a 4, you’d dial 773.83 before the extension and if it begins with a 3, you’d dial 773.75 before the extension.

STUDENT EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEMS To contact the University of Chicago Police, dial 123 or 2.8181 from any campus telephone. Off campus, dial 773.702.8181. To use one of the more than 300 emergency telephones (identifiable by their blue lights and white cases) around the neighborhood, press the red button to immediately contact the University of Chicago Police. To contact Chicago Police, dial 911 or 9.911 from any campus phone. In the event of any critical incident, students can ask to speak with the Dean-on-Call (DoC) or the Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call (SADoC). The DoC or the SADoC can be reached by calling the University of Chicago Police Department (UCPD) Dispatch at 773.702.8181 and asking for the Dean-on-Call or the Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call. The dispatcher will notify the DoC or the SADoC and the DoC or the SADoC will contact the caller back. A caller does not have to tell the dispatcher why he or she is calling or give his or her name. Students can page the DoC or the SADoC directly, by dialing 773.834.HELP (4357), and following the instructions on the automated system. Students should be prepared to punch in their call back number. The DoC or the SADoC will contact the caller back. Visit http://deanoncall.uchicago.edu or http://help.uchicago.edu for more information about these services. In the event that a student personally experiences or is a witness to an incidence of bias, students have the opportunity to speak with the Bias Response Team (BRT) Member-on-Call at 773.702.2427. A BRT Member-on-Call is available 24 hours a day. If you are the victim of a crime, witness a crime, or feel suspicious about something, there are many ways to call for help by using campus telephones or the emergency telephones throughout the Hyde Park neighborhood. The University of Chicago Police Department is the main resource for students who have been victims of crime or the witnesses of crime, but they are also able to direct students to other services and individuals that can help with unique cases.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO The University of Chicago was founded in 1890 by John D. Rockefeller, and its first president was William Rainey Harper, who agreed to become president on the condition that he be allowed to establish a university that would be unlike any other. He conceived of a university that would emphasize the creation of new knowledge and “make the work of investigation primary.” To this end, the University has always been dedicated to excellence in research and has sought only the most distinguished scholars for its faculty.

IMPACT 0N HIGHER EDUCATI0N Over the years, the University and its faculty have had a major impact on American higher education. Faculty scholarship has shaped several essential disciplines and established important and distinctive “Chicago schools” in such disparate fields as economics, evolutionary biology, sociology, literary criticism, anthropology, law, and economics.

STRUCTURE, STATISTICS & ARCHITECTURE The University is composed of an undergraduate College, four graduate divisions (Biological Sciences, Humanities, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences), six graduate professional schools (Booth School of Business, Divinity School, Law School, Pritzker School of Medicine, Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies, and School of Social Service Administration), and the William B. and Catherine V. Graham School of General Studies. The University also includes libraries, research institutes, clinics, museums, theaters, and a university press. The University’s English Collegiate Gothic buildings, built of gray Indiana limestone, were designed to frame shady, green quadrangles. Contemporary campus buildings—designed by Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Rafael Viñoly—have been designed in keeping with the original Gothic theme while drawing from the tradition of great modern architecture for which the city of Chicago is famous. On July 1, 2006, Robert J. Zimmer became the University’s thirteenth President.

WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO! THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO ALUMNI ASSOCIATION WELCOMES THE CLASS OF 2015 AND NEW TRANSFER STUDENTS! Dear Class of 2015 and new transfer students: Welcome to the University of Chicago! All of us who belong to the over 350,000 members of the University’s worldwide community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends, are extremely proud you have chosen to join our ranks. Like you, I was once a new student here. In the late 90’s, I arrived in Hyde Park to begin a professional career at UChicago. I immediately connected with the University and decided to deepen my relationship with the institution by pursuing an MBA at Chicago Booth. What I got, in addition to a world class education, was a network of friends, colleagues, and classmates who have been part of my life ever since. While you are at UChicago, the Alumni Association will sponsor a number of activities which we hope will enrich your time at the University. During Winter Break, for example, you will be invited to attend Interview Skills Workshops in cities around the country. When you return after the holidays we will invite you to join us at Alumni House for Hot Chocolate Night and to pick up your Class of 2015 mug. Also this winter, the Alumni Board of Governors (ABG) will invite you to apply for the Career Externship Program. Students selected as Externs will shadow alumni during Spring Break in a wide variety of fields in cities across the country and abroad. Finally, twice a year the ABG and Student Alumni Committee (SAC) co-sponsors the Distinguished Alumni Speaker Series which brings notable alumni like Ana Marie Cox, AB ‘94, the original Wonkette, to campus to speak with students. We plan these and other activities with alumni volunteers and current students such as those involved with the Student Alumni Committee (SAC). Please pass on suggestions to us or to them–or better yet, join SAC yourself–if you have ideas for ways the Alumni Association can be of service to you. You are always welcome to drop by Alumni House for a quick cup of coffee or to browse our library of alumniauthored books. Please feel free to contact me or any of my colleagues at Alumni House if we can answer any questions about what it means to be a proud alumnus or alumna of this extraordinary University. Once again, welcome to UChicago and we hope to see you soon. Sincerely,

Damon Cates, MBA ’05 Executive Director University of Chicago Alumni Association Alumni House 5555 South Woodlawn Avenue 800.955.0065 http://alumniandfriends.uchicago.edu

FROM ’95 TO ’15, JOIN THE LEGACY! Welcome to the Hyde Park, Class of 2015! Twenty years ago today, we—the Class of 1995—were where you are now. After a summer of goodbyes to our hometowns and high school friends, we made our way to the south side of Chicago. Some of us were used to living away from home, others had never spent more than a night or two away from our parents. We came from across the United States and around the world to embark on a journey together at the venerable University of Chicago. Orientation Week was filled with meeting new friends, discovering Harold’s Chicken Shack, exploring the lakefront and downtown Chicago, choosing classes, and wondering what life holds for a University of Chicago graduate. The Class of 1995 would like you to know that alumni are here to support you. We encourage you to consider us a resource among the many you have available to you to enrich your college experience: your classmates, professors and Teaching Assistants, your Assistant Resident Head and Resident Head, your college advisor, and the Ombudsperson. We treasure our memories of life on the quads and we offer our experiences to you as you navigate your college experience, choose majors, write papers, ponder graduate school, apply for internships, and dream about your careers after college. As a student in the College, my life focused primarily on the University of Chicago campus. Now, as a long-time resident, staff, and faculty member at the University, I have come to discover and appreciate the richness of the larger University and Hyde Park communities. I encourage you to explore the many events on campus and throughout the neighborhood. The Class of 1995 is looking forward to seeing you on campus at lectures, celebrations and gatherings, meeting you in restaurants and around the beautiful Hyde Park neighborhood, hosting you in job shadowing and internships, and offering advice and support as you make your journey through the next four years. We wish you the very best and welcome you. Sara Ray Stoelinga, AB ’95, AM ’01, PhD ’04 Class Correspondent, College Class of 1995

5. SHAKE DAY

This is one tradition that really can’t be beat. Where else can you get a fabulous shake in your choice of flavors with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry, FOR JUST $1?! That’s right; Wednesday is Shake Day at the C-Shop/Einstein’s in the Reynolds Club. Even if it’s -2 degrees outside, the line often snakes out the door— it’s a tradition not to be missed.

6. SCAV HUNT

You might want to start preparing now for this tradition. While only 25 years old, the Annual University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt has certainly become a student favorite and usually earns the College a mention on all of the local news stations each spring. Beginning at midnight on a Thursday morning and ending on “Judgment Day” the following Sunday, students are challenged with tasks that require them to do everything from building an aquarium and a nuclear reactor to obtaining a live tiger. Everyone from students to administrators and faculty get into the act, and all agree it’s an epic time.

7. FORMER BIG TEN WARRIORS

In the early days, the University of Chicago fought on the playing field against the mighty Big Ten powerhouses of today. In fact, the University of Chicago won the very first Big Ten title and was home to the first Heisman Trophy winner, Jay Berwanger, AB ‘36. Of course, the College is comparably much smaller today, giving us different sports rivalries. Nonetheless, if you have any friends that are going to school at Notre Dame, make sure they know that the University of Chicago is undefeated against Notre Dame, and has the most winning record against them of any other school (4-0).

8. HISTORY OF THE REGENSTEIN & MANSUETO LIBRARIES

Long before the Regenstein Library was ever conceived, the majestic Stagg Field stood on 57th Street, and beneath it, a mostly unnoticed gloomy squash court beneath the west stands. It was on the squash court on December 2, 1942, that a team of scientists led by famed physicist Enrico Fermi lit the first atomic fire on earth. The newest addition to the Regenstein Library is the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library, which features a glass-domed reading room and robotic retrieval arms to bring students books from their underground homes.

9. VARSITY ATHLETES ONLY?

Directly across from Cobb Hall lies the C-Bench, a long (and somewhat uncomfortable) “acoustically perfect” bench given to the University by the Class of 1903. For quite some time, only Varsity Lettermen and their dates were allowed to occupy the bench. By the 1960’s this trend had faded out, and today, the bench provides a social gathering point for all students, a favorite spot for those enjoying a break from their classes or enjoy lunch on a beautiful spring day.

10. A GATHERING PLACE FOR THE WORLD

Those who’ve read Devil in the White City know well that the World’s Fair came to Chicago in 1893, attracting millions of people to the city and the Hyde Park area. When Chicago was chosen to host the Fair, civic leaders immediately chose to place it on the Hyde Park section of the Midway, which they considered the most beautiful and interesting location in the city. Today, you can sit and read a book in the same spot that the world’s first Ferris Wheel stood proudly—with cars big enough for 60 people each!
