    ITEMS TO BRING WITH YOU
    You will be issued six Summer Seminar t-shirts, a pair of sweat pants, and a sweat shirt. You only need to bring 1 – 2 sets of civilian clothes for travel and academic workshops. Dress is informal but neat in appearance. Shorts or pants must be tasteful, please do not wear shorts or pants that are tattered, torn, or have holes. Closed toe shoes are required for daily events (i.e. sandals are not acceptable). (The temperatures may be in the 80's, 90's, or 100’s with possible showers, and high humidity. Due to the exceptionally high temperatures in Annapolis in June, shorts are encouraged). Remember, you will have physical training at 5:30am every day without the ability to do laundry.
    Be sure to bring:
    1. Appropriate athletic shorts (4 pairs)
    2. Socks (10 - 12 pairs)
    3. Undergarments (10-12 pairs)
    4. Towels (2-3)
    5. Twin size bed linens (1 set)
    6. Pillow and pillowcase
    7. Toiletries and shower flip flops
    8. Running shoes (You might want to bring a second pair of older running shoes for the Team Building Exercises).
    9. Swim Suit. For females, a one piece swim suit is required.
    10. Travel alarm clock
    11. Photo ID
    12. Bring a combination or key lock for clothing lockers.*

    You don't really need the 4 pairs of athletic shorts because they will give you some to wear, just make sure not to skimp out on the socks and underwear.

    Yes, khaki slacks or shorts and polo shirt is my suggestion. But anything neat-looking will do. Don't forget some cash for the Mid Store!

    Just so you know, there is no formal dinner at the end of NASS. I never wore normal clothes last year except for travel. Ditto on the old running shoes!! I didn't even bring mine home!!!!

    The dinner the last night consisted of MRE's by the pool and the midnight snack was the best PB & J I have ever had (which was probably because we were exhausted and we just wanted food). The last day is Sea Trials so you don't get done with that and mock indoc until late and most of the squads just ordered pizza and watched a movie. Mine went out to Trident Point and had sandwiches and told stories of back home.

    As for the old shoes for team building events, BRING THEM!! Mine got destroyed and didn't even make it back into my room. Don't bring your dad's nice white sneakers because they will not return in that condition. There was a kid who did that and was not very happy at the end of the night.

    On a side note, I would bring an extra plastic bag to put your clothes from Sea Trials in. Ours were nasty and we felt bad for the poor luggage people if they inspected any of our bags. I would take the plastic bag or set aside a separate compartment of your bag for those clothes.
