    Hello everyone,

    In exactly one week, I will be at The Citadel for my Pre-Knob overnight visit. I am extremely excited for this experience! Just one problem - I can't find a packing list anywhere. My hopes are that The Citadel will send me one early next week, but I want to prepare myself the best I can. This is where y'all can hopefully be able to help me. If anyone knows what needs to be 1) WORN (clothing) and 2) what needs to be brought (toiletries, purse, notebook, SLEEPING BAG, etc?). I am mostly concerned with what to wear during the visit. Is a pair of slightly above the knee athletic shorts & a tshirt acceptable for a female? I would hate to have to wear jeans all weekend.. But I will wear whatever is best. I'm just not sure what that "best" is yet. Any input is appreciated! Thanks.

    -O

    You should be able to log in to your application account and find a packing list, or go back and look at the email they sent you verifying your pre knob visit. The packing list was on there. I don't recall if a sleeping bag was required or not.

    As for clothing, when my DD went last spring, she wore khaki pants with a nice shirt and flats, and brought another nice shirt for the second day to wear with the same khakis. She brought PT gear to sleep in. At some point she swapped the flats for her tennis shoes, but remained in the khakis. I don't suggest you arrive in PT shorts; most of the kids were dressed nice but comfortable.

    I forgot they sent me the confirmation email - thanks for the reminder! In the email it just says casual and comfortable dress because there will be plenty of walking. It also says don't forget toiletries! :) Nothing mentioned about a sleeping bag.

    Thank you again for your advice! So, do you think a nice pair of jeans and a conservative, plain colored tshirt would work?

    That would work, if you don't have khakis or nice pants. Lots of kids did have jeans on. You should consider the dress code to be somewhere in between "job interview" and "comfortable".
