First years beware

I’ve been picked to be a peer tutor for the Analysis I classes this year, so watch out for a Northerner (with a capital “N”) who’ll probably appear to be as clueless as you :)

I’m debating the Email that came through to us reading:

“We had so many requests that it was very difficult to make the choices. ... I’m sorry there were not more places available because everyone who applied is very well qualified to do the job”

however, since I didn’t put anything extra on the form (under “special motivations”) and only said I was available for a few of the times. Whether that means they’ll try to woo me into clashing with a core module lecture when I go to this meeting on friday is another matter.

It’s good to be back, isn’t it folks? Apart from being told to expect a 10% drop in your marks this year and being told that the second year is the hardest (etc.), you’ve just gotta love Warwick and it’s new intake of freshers.

The Cov buses are CRAP though. 40 bleedin’ minutes I was waiting for. Lucky I turned up to Combinatorics in L3 15 minutes late to find it had been cancelled, because no lecture theatre on campus will work properly. Official. I’ve paid £181 for that kinda service? Pah.
