Hi guys,

my orientation session is TOMORROW!!!! the only walking utensil i brought with me is a pair of flip-flops.

my question is that will a pair of flip-flops suffice for 3 days of orientation? or do I need tennis shoes? thanks!!!

    I managed to survive carpe noctem (basically the only time you'd actually need tennis shoes because you have to run) with flip flops, but it'd would have been a lot easier with tennis shoes, so you'd probably be better off bringing them just in case because even if you don't do carpe noctem, there's still a lot of walking.

    It's a scavenger hunt in the middle of the night where they give you a list of hints and a polaroid camera and your group of 10 has to find the locations and take pictures in front of it. Mine was pretty enjoyable, but a lot of groups quit part way through. Oh, and it does take a long time though (2 hours for our group), but if you win, you get free sweatshirts.

    You should bring a pair of tennis shoes in case.. One person in my group for carpe noctem broke her flip flops and had to leave before it started.. So it would be better to have backup =)

    check in is at 8 am

    You will get better at traversing the mountains and jungles of UCLA... and more capable of dodging the bears and wild of BruinWalk as you go along and continue your brisk walks and occasional hikes over the mountains, hills, and across the non-existent lakes.

    During Carpe Noctem on Bruinwalk, some OC's (I think) were hiding behind a tree and tossing water balloons at us. so sneaky..
