What to Bring

You will be staying in the Southgate Campus Centre which is a college dormitory, not a hotel. Although sheets, light blankets, towels and wash cloths will be furnished, you must bring your own pillow and pillow case. An additional blanket is recommended inasmuch as the sleeping quarters are quite cool. You may bring a sleeping bag and additional towels and wash cloths if you wish.

We recommend that you bring the following items:

  • Alarm clock (see note 1)
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Toothpaste/Toothbrush
  • Deodorant
  • Sunscreen (optional)
  • Other personal hygiene items as needed
  • Small clip lamp for dorm room (see note 2)
  • Light rain gear
  • Comfortable shoes for walking to the capitol
  • A t-shirt will be provided
  • 3-4 Pairs of Jeans or Khaki pants (no holes, rips, logos, etc.)
  • Light weight sweater or jacket (classrooms are sometimes quite cool)
  • Proper clothing for dinner (see Dress Code)
  • Pajamas/appropriate night clothes
  • Optional
    • Voice recorder for recording lectures
    • Talent show material (see Talent Show)
    • Wrist watch (see note 3)
    • Camera (Selfie sticks, tripods, any GoPro mounts  etc. are not permitted.)
    • Cell phones may be brought but their use will be allowed only during certain specified times.
      • Cell phones may not be used during conference meeting hours. Students will be given emergency contact numbers that will allow the parents to reach the student during
        conference hours in case of an emergency.

Note 1:  The alarm clock is a necessity. We arise and are out of the dorm by 6:30 AM.

Note 2: Dorm room lighting in Southgate Campus Centre is very limited. We recommend that you bring a small UL approved clip-on lamp. The clip must be plastic so that it will not mar the furniture. Lamps with metal screw-on clips are not acceptable.

Note 3: Wristwatches are not required but will come in handy, as cell phones are not permitted during conference hours. A watch will help the student to be on time for all conference activities.
