Cedar shoe trees Flannel shoe pouches FROGS, those little gold things that cover the pins on the back of name tags and ribbons And the all time favorite For what it's worth, don't go nuts and buy all these things before Plebe Summer!
Most things brought to I-day will be put away over the summer, but you can pack them into a bag to be brought up over Plebe Parents Weekend. Then they can take the things back to their new room when they move in for Reform.
Remember that there are usually three students to a room, so before you run out and get all these items, check with your Plebe and find out whether the other two roomies already have an iron and ironing board, or a hot pot or mousetraps. They don't need three of everything!
There are Walmarts and KMarts and Targets etc, in the area. You don't need to buy ahead. But if you want a gift idea for graduation, those are some ideas that parents have collected over the years.
To facilitate communications with your soon-to-be Plebe, you might want to hand out postcards to friends and relatives. Preaddress them with your student's name and address which will be sent to you about the middle of June.
Other than a few hurried phone calls, the only support you can offer your student during the six weeks of Plebe Summer is through the post office.
Consider sending alot of mail. It is treasured by Plebes. Number your envelopes as you send them out. Plebes often receive mail out of order due to the hectic schedule they keep.
They might not get anything for days on end and then receive several letters in one day. A numbering system gives them an idea of which one to open first.
Most Plebes will grow to hate these sneakers. Send your Plebe with their own pair of mostly white sneakers that are comfortable and well broken in. But the single most important advice for Plebes-to-be is to run every day.
Breaking them in during Plebe Summer may be an issue. Plebes can bring their own pair of mostly white sneakers. Many Plebes have problems with their feet due to the endless miles of running. Consider getting them cushioned insoles and send them in a care package.
Shin splints turn into stress fractures. Being a "broken Plebe" is not desirable. Running every day before I-day makes the schedule of daily runs during Plebe Summer more bearable so encourage a daily run.
You might consider running with your soon to be Plebe! Exercise is a good way to deal with stress and we all have too much of that. How does a Plebe prepare for I-day? How does a parent prepare for I-day? Then give them away. Easier said than done! All incoming plebes should have this memorized verbatim before they walk through the doors of Alumni Hall!
Tell them to memorize it and practice saying it out loud, they'll be nervous that day, so they should learn to spit this out in their sleep.
