What should residential students bring for the dorms?

Students traveling from out of state will be provided linens, pillows and blankets for their beds. However, in state students should bring their own. Students also should bring their own toiletry items; shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.  We also recommend bringing some pocket money for any evening activities. We recommend bringing games for in the dorms, but not expensive electronic devices that can be lost or stolen. It will be the camper’s responsibility to secure their belongings in their room prior to them leaving for the days or evening activities.
