I am going to keep an updated list here of some excellent first year LiveJournal Blogs as they come to hand. Please visit them, make friends, make comments and let's keep the community growing and growing: For some wonderful stories, poems and comments take a look for starters at:
http://jess-bonoffski.livejournal.com/ - Jess is an international student from the US: give her a good welcome!
More to come... keep your eyes and ears open.
And.... if you are burning to get your name on this list... and I may have missed your brilliance then please send me a note- (will be kept strictly confidential!)- and I will post you on.... no charge for this!!!!!
And please note- first year students looking for ideas for what you can write in your LJ... please scroll back in this (my) LiveJournal to my summaries of teaching in Weeks 1,2 and 3... you will find lots of ideas there.
