what all attendees should bring

Overnight Bedding

Students will be staying in Williams Hall. Parents/guests/supporters that choose to stay on campus will be staying away from their student(s) in our singles complex. Single guests will have a room with an extra-long twin bed. Two guests staying in a room together will have two extra-long twin beds. All overnight students and guests will need to bring their own extra-long twin linens (flat fitted extra-long sheet, extra-long twin sheet, blanket, and pillow) along with toiletries, (toothbrush, shower sandals, towel, washcloth, etc.). There are community bathrooms on each floor with individual shower stalls.

We will have some extra-long twin sheets on hand for purchase, for $25, if you forget to bring your own. Otherwise, in the past based on personal comfort, some students have brought sleeping bags, extra flat sheets or extra-long blankets to cover the bed.


Orientation events are casual. You may also want to bring a sweater, light jacket or sweatshirt (many buildings on campus are very cold), umbrella and a rain jacket if needed.

Students will spend time in the Markin Family Student Recreation Center and engage in a Minute-To-Win-It competition where light physical activity will occur. Please bring gym shoes and recreational clothing. Guests/supporters will also have access to the Markin Center but down/free time is limited. Guests under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
