What To Bring


1. Standard Sleep Gear: Sleeping bag & Pillow

There is a high chance you will be sleeping on the floor. Do not worry! All of the Saint Mary's students will clean prior to your arrival.

2. Anti Stink Gear: Toiletries

Be sure to remember your shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant, a towel, and shower shoes!

3. Comfortable Clothes: Your Way

Be comfortable during your stay here. Wear what you like! Check the weather to see what is most appropriate.

4. Extra Hungry?: Cash for snacks

You will be well fed during your stay here. However if you have a big appetite, then bring some extra cash. We have a Café and vending machines around campus.

5. Gael Attitude: An Open Mind

We are looking forward to this event and providing you with an excellent experience. It is that much better if you participate as much as you feel comfortable. Sit with others at dinner, talk about your interests, and ask questions to any student you may meet (admitted or current!).
