To all Summer 2014 Participants:
It’s great to see all the yak boards coming alive! This is a very exciting time of year for all of us, and while we know that you are anxious to meet your traveling companions, we have a request for you: please don’t direct your fellow travelers to social-networking sites (e.g., Facebook) before the course. Let us explain: our interest is to provide you with the best experience possible, and over the past 22 years, we have learned that that you will get the most out of your Dragons program if you’re able to make fresh introductions on the day that your course begins. We welcome you to introduce yourself here, and we hope that you will use this site to voice your goals and ideas for this summer’s course and to begin forming a group culture. But we’d like to avoid students forming any sort of “cliques” online before even departing on this program. We certainly know that you can all find each other on Facebook quite easily, and while we cannot (and don’t want to) forbid such networking, we encourage you to abstain from doing so and invite you to show up to meet your group in June without pre-judgment and with a willingness to expose yourself to everything new, different, wild and other. We wish you the best as you prepare for this summer’s adventures!
