So I'm wondering what the weather is like in Providence, and what kinds of clothes I should bring? Should I pack long jeans, or more shorts? Hooded sweaters?

I live in Southern California, and the shoes that I basically wear all year round are my flip flops/ sandals.

What should I expect in Providence?

I need to get my hair-cut. I have a short (prertty damn short) hair and I'm a girl so it's hard finding someone good. But it's touching my neck and driving me insane and I need it done in Providence, Saturday. Where to go? Walking distance from RISD?
6:18 pm

kay so... just to verify...
Saturday the 24th is orientation at 9 am? 
its located in the upper met cafe?
and is it for students and parents?
and when is the first day of classes?

I'm excited! Who else is excited? *jumps up and down* (I'm not this annoying in real life, I promise ^_^)

Quick question about laptops: About how many people really bring one? How safe would it be to keep it in the dorm? Would there be a place to lock it? How about internet? I heard that there's a fairly good connection, but is it wireless or do I need an ethernet cord?

Thanks for your help!

By the way, how's the tap water in Providence? Safe and tasty? Or...?

Maybe I should just use my ID at the Met, since apparently I'll have a shit ton of money left.

questions questions
Hello everybody,

Since it's getting really close to precollege and I need to start packing and preparing I have some questions for past precollegers.

Is the RISD store really that expensive? The tour guide at the preview said it was the same as any other store but I have my doubts.

If I'm not majoring in painting do I need to get Oils? All I have is acrylics but I don't know if I should buy them beforehand, if the risd store is actually very expensive.

How vicious are the critiques? I'm kind of shy and I feel like they are going to be the hardest thing for me :\

What do they do during the first few days to get everyone aqquainted? And why is the art show like two days before the last day instead of the very last day?

If you were a drawing major is it really that brutal? Will I have time to socialize?

What are the washing machines like? Pretty much all my clothes are hand washable... so thats not good.

How much food should you bring for your dorms? Can you take stuff back from the met to supplement buying snacks for the night?

Should I bring my old work? Is there any reason to?

Is it worth it paying the fee to use the brown facilities and pool and stuff? Does anyone ever actually go swimming there?

Ive heard on this board that there is no air conditioning, but when I went to the preview the girl said that the rooms are air conditioned. Did this change or was it only in that building?

Do the bathrooms get really dirty?

Is internet connection pretty consistent in the dorms or is it better to just use computers provided?

Anything else I should be prepared for or anything else I should know?

Ok I guess I'll stop there since I already asked too many questions. But thank you to anyone that responds

Getting close!
Less than two weeks until precollege starts and I just found this community now. hehe...better late than never, I always say. (well not *always* but you know what I mean ^_^)

So as we get closer and closer to the start of the program why don't we share some basic information to help us identify each other when we're there?
-First name
-Grade (just finished)
-One random fact about yourself

I'll start:
I may be one of the youngest people there (I don't turn 16 until July 19)

Wow Two more weeks until Precollege. I Dont get out of school until the 20th. Wow im super exicted to meet everyone and seeing the amazing art.

I basically made Precollege the subject of all my conversations for the last 3 weeks. My friends cant shut me up and you can defiantly see the anger when i want to bring it up. But if i dont talk about it i think i would Explode.

A question for previous pre-college students:

Doing one's own laundry vs. Professional laundry service.

Which would you suggest?
