Yes, if you missed our orientation on Oct 7, our Induction Day is this coming Friday (October 13th, 2017 at 6pm in EB 102. This is when we have our first meeting of the new Braindump group, go through some training, and process new recruits – accounts, applications, mugshots, etc.

If you missed the Orientation, you can get an idea of some of the things we covered by looking at these links:

You will need to fill out the CAT Application and bring it with you on Friday (10/13/2017) at 6pm when you show up for induction. (You can find the application, as well as a Braindump Orientation highlights video from previous years, in one of the links provided on this post.)

If you don’t already have one, make sure you have a white ID access badge (sometimes referred to as a Proxy Card) and bring it with you. You can get them from the ID services window in Neuberger Hall (it’s free if you haven’t had one before).

Hope to see you there!

What if I can’t make it to the induction?

If you can normally make Friday nights, but really truly can’t make it just this once, you can still join. Download the application from the link above, fill it out, and bring it to the CAT front desk in 82-01 before the 13th. We’ll have a chat with you to find out if your schedule will allow you to participate, and plan to get your accounts set up and arrange a time for you to cover some of the material you missed. If you have questions or can’t get your application in before Friday October 13, please send us an email at
