are we issued toiletries or do we bring our own?
I am pretty sure you bring your own
CGA Cadet Handbook
The 2009 Cadet handbook (haven't you memorized it by now? states you bring toiletries; soap, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving gear...etc.
Last year one of the issued items was a caddy-type carry all to lug your stuff to the showers. And a very nice robe.
Tip: Suave makes a shampoo/body wash combo, all in one bottle. Save space.
It's been said before but always bears repeating Pack only what's on the list You may second-guess yourself or think you need extra stuff, you won't. Son fit everything in his backpack and traveled light.
Good luck to you and all the Class of 2013.
I bought a backpack and everything fits in it as well. I went to Walmart and found 3-in-1 shampoo Its kids shampoo but hey, if it cuts down on time, I dont care if it is for babies. Im bringing some in a travel size bottle and my mom is putting the actual bottle in the first care package she is sending me So now my questions is, Are they giving us the caddy for the showers or should we buy our own?
