I was happy to receive my uniform on time. All full time employees and students at FU must wear a uniform. For women, we are suppose to wear two different shirts: one pink and one blue that alternate depending on the day of the week. I didn't know this rule, so I ended up wearing my pink shirt two days in a row and was politely notified by my colleague that I was off rhythm. I chuckled at the thought of myself sticking out like a sore thumb, obliviously walking around campus and being the new, foreign instructor wearing the wrong color shirt! I'll get it right next week. As a side note, the uniforms were specially tailored and fitted to me. They took my measurements and sewed it within two days. A perfect fit!

The campus is quite beautiful. The president of the school, Dr. Mira Sinco, is an active gardener. In her 80's, she has a reputation for being the only president that can be caught deadheading the flowers or pulling weeds as she walks around campus. In the center of the campus is a tasteful Japanese inspired water feature and pond with fish. Not sure if the species is koi, but it has the same affect.
