GRIP begins in 2 weeks and 1 day. I'm excited!!!!
I am starting to plan for packing, because I'll have to do some shopping first. I mentioned some of these things before, but I'm trying to consolidate my list, for me as well as for anyone else who may be attending.
ethernet cable - for the room (there's WIFI in the classrooms and the lounge area)
hair dryer - this isn't a hotel
body wash and hand soap - again this isn't a hotel
umbrella and/or rain jacket - the Pittsburgh weather is a little different from Phoenix weather
dressing in layers - who knows whether the classrooms will be hot or cold
business cards - an easy way of giving out your name and contact info to classmates as well as in dining room
computer power cord and extension cord
walking shoes - the LaRoche campus is beautiful
small bag to carry to and from class - for syllabus, computer, pens/pencils, etc.
So, what am I forgetting?
Oh, yes. A list of books I already have so I can shop at Maia's books
the normal clothes, toiletries, etc.
cell phone charger
Yes, the hotel provides sheets and towels, but a fitted twin sheet is helpful because the mattress covers are slippery and fitted twin sheets don't stay tucked in very well.
