You don't have to ask any questions at all. And based on my experience you won't even know what the important questions will be until you arrive in August. And of course there's a good chance that if you ask a cogent question that the moderator won't know the answer anyway! But here are a few softball questions that won't get anyone in trouble:
- When will I find out which dorm I'm in?
- Do freshmen get to move in before upperclassmen? Can my parents park on campus while I move in?
- How do I confirm my classes when I get to campus in August?
- Can I order text books from the bookstore ahead of time? Will the bookstore ship them to me?
Our son met with his academic advisor the first day of orientation in preparation for registering for his first semester classes the next day. He put together a tenative two semester schedule and a list of possible non-tech electives he was considering. One elective he included was a philosophy course Moral Development. His advisor knew Prof Puka, recommended him highly which led to his Philo minor and a great relationship with Prof Puka.
