IBP Super Weekly Update~!

Well, biweekly (this time around). I apologize for not updating you all last week, so get ready for lots of IBP news!

Last week we spent most of our time gearing up for a mentor training on July 31st. This will be the final training for new mentors, so make sure you are RSVP'd and ready to receive your buddies' contact information!  

We have over 150 buddies and counting right now who will be joining us here at the U in the Fall.  Yay buddies! 

We are also busy getting ready for our first two events coming up at the end of August. We will have our first Welcome Party on August 25th and a BBQ behind Coffman on August 28th.  Sukai and Tori are also going to check out volunteer opportunities for our September engagement event.

Also, buddy mentors~ don't forget that our second training sessions are coming up on August 14th & 24th.  Watch for emails coming your way soon!

IBP Weekly Super Update

(This is a working title, just so you know..)

Hello all!

So, we have decided that since we have begun matching you all with your buddies, we would keep you updated with what we (the Program Assistants) are up to each week. 

We are all anxious for your arrival, so we have been working hard to get all the buddy mentors trained and ready to get in touch with their buddies.  We will be holding one more training session on July 31st for mentors, to make sure we will have a nice big group.

We are also working on raising money for our upcoming welcome events, planning the events, and getting all the buddies matched in a timely manner. 

We are also thinking of having a "Question of the Week" type thing; if anyone would like to leave a comment with a question for us, we might use it in future posts!

Thanks for reading and see you all soon!

A word on the Facebook

Since not everyone is familiar with the facebook and since we will be using it as a way for people to RSVP for events, I thought I would make a post about it so we are all on the same internet page (come on, it's a joke~).

Anyway, the facebook is a website where you make a profile for yourself and use it to network with people who you can "friend".  You can then post things to your friends' profiles as well as join groups (like the IBP group).  You can also do tons of other fun things that are too numerous to fully talk about here, as they are better left to your exploration.

Now, we are saying that you have to join the facebook or our facebook group, but it is just one more way for you to learn about IBP as well as probably the most common way college in the US stay in touch with each other. 

The website is www.facebook.com.  They have it in many languages other than English, so if your native language is more comfortable for you, you can probably find it on there.  You can also join the IBP group at this address: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=31946079949

This will also be a good way to connect with your buddies, too.

Good luck if you decide to join the facebook!  Leave a comment if you have any questions and I'll get back to you!
Hello everyone,

Here is the post where we would like you to introduce yourself to the rest of the group.

Please post a comment with:
-your name
-your major (or what you're thinking of majoring in)
-your hobbies/ things you like to do
-your favorite food
and how to say hello in your native language.

Ok, buddies!  Let's get to know each other :-)  Feel free to comment on others' posts as well! 
(you can read the program assistants' introductions on our introductions post below)
