orientation freebies?

Does anyone know if we're going to get any free supplies at orientation? I ask 1) because free stuff is cool and 2) so that I don't end up bringing something unneccesarily, like my brother when he bought a new backpack only to get another at Davis.

    I want a free backpack! I'm just using an old one, can't be bothered to get a new one now, but a free one would be nice :) UChicago students get free backpacks too, so I hope we'll also get one.

    I mean, since we're paying an exorbitant amount for tuition, they might as well give us a few nice freebies. You know what would rock? If they gave us free bikes. I mean, Duke students get a free iPod, and a bike can be cheaper than that if they buy them from Target or Walmart!

    I want a free bike!

    I would like some free schwag.

    I have four Stanford t-shirts (only one of them was paid for) but I could always use more.

    hong Kong university gives out free laptops to all new students. apparently it's a tradition... that totally ROCKS!!! for those who get in, of cousre. and they're good ones too.

    i hope there are freebies. i live for freebies. :)

    Free laptops!!!!! Yeesh. We're going to one of the premier schools in the world, in SILICON VALLEY, and they don't give US free laptops. I bet all we get is a cheap plastic fan with the letter S. Or a hat.

    Kuwait University doesn't give out any freebies. Then again there's virtually no tuition fee, so the students can't complain. Wait, yes they can - it's a crappy uni.

    I wouldn't mind a hat.

    But I would take a laptop over a hat.
  • nkaynkay Registered User Posts: 339 Member
    I would take a laptop over a hat AND a bike.

    Imagine if they gave us all Apple computers....plus an iPod... *dreamy look*

    Like that's going to happen. No, we'll probably get a hat. Plus a t-shirt if we're really lucky. If we're children of alumni then we'll get a hat-t-shirt-flip-flop combo (I hear there are Stanford flip-flops)

    flip flops, cool, thats all I need, well a laptop wouldnt be bad, i could use my laptop money for trips to San Francisco, or for music. I just hope they can give us all ipods, i mean, with sillicon valley so close and everything. Flip flops, California weather, Stanford, what else do you want in life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • staticsoliloquystaticsoliloquy Registered User Posts: 1,496 Senior Member
    i want birkenstocks flip-flops, cargo shorts, a stanford t-shirt, and sunglasses, essentials for a stanford students!

    "Flip flops, California weather, Stanford, what else do you want in life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Indeed!
  • garougarou Registered User Posts: 178 Junior Member
    A nice and big planner and a new backpack is all I ask for in life. Having grown up in California, I have more flipflops than I know what to do with. Stanford flipflops wouldn't hurt though. I won't need any of it, though, if I transfer to Hong Kong University. ;)

    On second thought, forget the laptops. If we're going for Silicon Valley-related freebies, then I want complimentary shares of Google.
  • staticsoliloquystaticsoliloquy Registered User Posts: 1,496 Senior Member
    haha shares of Google =)
    ...Apple too.
