Monday and Tuesday I had orientation. Lots of paperwork to fill out. Mostly I didn’t have any problem with it. For a while I thought they were going to mess up my health benefits, but it doesn’t seem that this has happened.
Today was faculty welcome back. Break out sessions. First was interesting, though neuhaus.org is a bit expensive for what I am interested in. Second was… excrutiatingly useless. CE is not really for academic courses, but is clearly workforce prep.
Discipline meetings were good.
Faculty senate was… odd. I did figure out why I never went (in my last tt job). I wasn’t a senator. But … interesting information covered. My “old” chair (he was my chair for 2 wks, for 11 yrs for the dept) is now faculty senate president.
Now all I have to do is figure out how to do what they want me to do. I did find the police station to get my faculty sticker, but I don’t know how to hang it. It’s just a plastic bag.
I have tried multiple times to get in to put my CV up, but so far nothing.
Can’t find the place they told me to go to get my class rosters.
And I am the tech person in my department.
I guess it might just be the overwhelming newness of it all.
