Please keep in mind that if a parent, guardian or other guest attends with you (this includes friends or significant others), they will be attending the separate parent portion of the Orientation program so you will be separated for most of the day.

  • Pillow
  • Robe and shower shoes
  • Alarm clock (or alarm app!)
  • Cell phone or calling card (for making long distance calls)

  • An umbrella, just in case
  • A small notebook and pen/pencil for taking notes
  • An excitement to meet your fellow Pioneers!
