    See what you wrote there? Say that. – Brian Feb 19 '15 at 19:33
  • Is there any reason you feel your manager may be too busy or has so many people that report to him that he isn't interested in anything one on one? – user8365 Feb 19 '15 at 20:21
  • You think you manager does not know where you are going to be on your first day of work? – paparazzo Feb 19 '15 at 20:38
  • @JeffO I am not sure about that. I know there is an orientation and throngs of NCGs will be there. – Ashwin Krishnamurthy Feb 19 '15 at 22:26
  • @Blam I dont know where he will be. – Ashwin Krishnamurthy Feb 19 '15 at 22:27

How about:

Dear [name]

I will be on campus on the [date] and would love to have 1:1 with you. I am just entering professional life and would like a chance to set my expectations. Thank you for your help!

    Never use "love to" in business correspondent. And avoid '!' ! – paparazzo Feb 19 '15 at 22:43
