Free Pizza
On my Graduate Student Orientation Schedule Sheet, listed for today was the following:

Dean's Welcome, 11 am-12 noon
Please join us for an informational hour presented by the Dean of the Jacobs School of Music and followed by a free pizza lunch!

Several of my new friends and I sat together, most of us thinking the same thing: "I hope this meeting doesn't go all the way to noon, because I am hungry for free food!" Sure enough, the meeting ended shortly before noon, and we were dismissed-- without being told where the lunch would be held. All the music grads (about 75 people) wandered out various exits looking for a line of pizzas. Most of us ended up in front of the music library, standing around wondering where our food was. Finally, I decided to take action. I went back to where our meeting was held, only to find a few other students being told that neither the dean nor the director of graduate studies were aware that there was supposed to be free pizza. I laughed so hard at all of us poor students who only came to the meeting to get a free meal. My friends and I ended up having a very nice (but very un-free) lunch across the street. Though none of us ordered pizza.
