The anticipation is palpable, we know, for this year’s welcome back video — which hits the airwaves tomorrow morning, on the first day of the semester.
But until then, take a deep breath — inhale…, exhale…, repeat — and enjoy last year’s video: a walk around some familiar spots on campus. And make sure to be checking your crimson email account or your classes’ Blackboard sites, for updates from faculty about how your classes will start off the semester.
If you’re new to REL then you may not know much about any of our traditions — such as our annual welcome back videos.
Started in 2012, with a drive around town and an TV show theme song from the 1970s, they’ve progressed over the years, both as a way signal the start of a new school year and to tip our hat to the new faculty members who have joined us.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic changing the game last Spring, and causing everyone to rethink what it means to go back to school in the Fall, REL is pleased to announce that — of course! — we have a new welcome back video, coming on the first day of the semester. Until then, however, we hope that you enjoy a little trip down memory lane, riding into campus with Prof. Altman.
