I finally start my grad school program this coming week. I attended the new student orientation last week and most of the people seem like cool and interesting people. But how does one go about making friends in grad school? + Special Snowflake details [more inside]

Please help. I work for a language school that teaches Mandarin Chinese to foreigners inside China. We specialize in one month intensive teaching for beginners. We want to increase our social media presence and have some (even though we do say so ourselves) excellent stand alone ideas to do this. They are educational free formats that allow people to study Chinese online in creative ways. We don't know the best way to present them though. Should they be 'onsite' options through our main webpage,or would they be better served as stand alone entities with their own page and an affiliation to our main company website? Any thoughts and shared best practice would be greatly appreciated.

So-- I go to boarding school. At my school, there's a senior position entitled Vice President of Social Life. I've already made it to the finals- just two candidates left. I have to give a speech on Tuesday. I was wondering if the MeFi community had any good ideas for social events to be held for a 9th through 12th grade high school. [more inside]
