Back to Dulcimer U Summer Week

What to bring

Here is a list of useful things to bring with you for your stay at Western Carolina University.

Dorm Room
• Mattress pad  (the dorm beds may not be as comfortable as the one you sleep on at home)
• Your own personal pillow  (a basic pillow will be provided for you by WCU along with sheets, towels and washcloths)
• Fitted twinXL bed sheet (WCU provides sheets. However, they are two flat sheets. You may prefer a fitted one)
• Toiletries  (basic items are not available for purchase in the dorm)
• Extra blanket  (some dorm rooms tend to get quite chilly during the night)
• Desk lamp or night light  (the only lighting in the rooms comes from fluorescent ceiling lights)
• Ethernet cable  (although the dorm is equipped with wireless Internet, a direct connection via Ethernet cable is sometimes more reliable)

Instructional Classroom  (many of these items can be purchased in the Dulcimer Emporium)
• Pencil
• Eraser
• Highlighter
• Note Pad
• Electronic Tuner
• Capo
• Picks
• Extra Strings
• Music Stand
• Reading Glasses
• Pocket Size Recorder  (please ask permission from the instructor before doing any recording)

What To Wear
• Comfortable, casual clothes are best. Although it's July, the dorm rooms and instructional classrooms sometime get a bit chilly. So, a long sleeved shirt or two and maybe even a sweater could come in handy - especially if you're one who tends to get cold easily.
• Comfortable walking shoes. The campus setting provides an excellent opportunity to get some exercise between classes if you choose.
• Rain jacket or umbrella. Although it's just a short walk form the dorm to the cafeteria, you might appreciate some protection, should it rain.
