try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-9586839-1”);
} catch(err) {}Because it’s no fun showing up without these things. Also because I keep on seeing visiting Seniors in High School on campus (some from Harker!) I figured this would be topical. I asked 5 friends to give me 5 things they forgot to bring to campus/were really important to have on campus. In no particular order, here are their ideas:

  1. Pictures of family and friend
  2. Personal hygene supplies
  3. Tupperware
  4. Batteries
  5. Vitamins
  6. Extension chord/squid
  7. Pushpins
  8. Extra show laces
  9. Baster
  10. Flashlight
  11. Tripod
  12. Vacuum
  13. First Aid Kit
  14. Underarmor (it’s a brand of long underwear, except all hip and stuff)
  15. Earmuffs
  16. Clothes for seasons that you will be in (ie, Floridians and Californians should know winter involves more than light rain)
  17. Book shelves
  18. Stapler
  19. Pencil sharpener
  20. Nail clipper/nail file
  21. Scissors
  22. Formal Wear–Suit, Tie, Belt for guys (we needed it for Convocation at CMU)
  23. Hand soap
  24. Small beanbag chair
  25. Extra pillow
  26. Extra credit: for CMU, a bike might be a good idea
