    Can anyone tell me if the plebes are supposed to carry their cell phones in the alloted gym bag, on their person or have it sent in first care package for I day. I was not sure and figured they needed a charged up cell phone for the luxury calls home!
    Thanks for any help

    Bring your cell phone (fully charged) to I-Day with the charger and place it in a ziploc bag. It will be returned to you temporarily for your three Plebe Summer phone calls and returned to you permanently at the end of Plebe Summer.

    Ditto.... Take the battery out, and put in ziploc bag with phone and charger... son did this. Sometimes the battery dies even when phone is turned off. Label everything! Including the ziploc bag.

    You might also want to consider wrapping the phone in a little bubble-wrap --- the detailers don't exactly baby the bags.

    If there is ANY question about your Plebe-to-be's cell phone integrity (age, battery life, etc), replace it NOW. Your Plebe does not need the stress of having a dead phone when trying to place their calls. Other 2015's will be too busy calling to loan one, and I don't know the rules about 2012's loaning theirs.
