Welcome Back Autumn 2009

I worked the Welcome Back table at the beginning of Autumn quarter and just came across the scribbled notes I made about a couple of the more memorable moments.

Me (Pointing at stairwell): You’ll need to go to the basement.
Student: The stairs going down?
(Ummmm ... yep. We keep the basement on the lower level around here.)

Student: “What’s the fastest way to the third floor?”
There were too many possible answers, so I just pointed at the elevators. Rocket? Teleport? Trampoline?
