What to Bring to Orientation?

<p>It'll be hot there when you're outdoors. I'm from cali too, and ny summers ARE a different kind of hot. Cali summers are dry, so the heat isn't that bad, whereas in NY, the weather is far more humid, making the heat less bearable and more stuffy. Definitely bring at least one pair of long pants and a jacket though, because while you're there, you spend most of your time in the silver center for arts and science, and that building BLASTS AC. Trust me, its absolutely freezing and you'll regret it if you're sitting there wearing a tank, shorts, and flip-flops =)</p>

<p>haha ok cool</p>

<p>speaking of sheets, I keep getting an advertisement, supposedly endorsed by NYU, for special long sheets that are like $800o a package, lol. Do you really need these sheets? Or can you just get extra long ones at a Walmart, or something?</p>

<p>you can get long sheets anywhere... thats just a scam to get you to buy THEIR sheets... dont do it</p>

<p>the package is actually only 180 and if u get the smaller packages (less junk) it can go down to about 119 ish...i dunno though...</p>

<p>what other places do they have long sheets at...i dont really like walmart, but what kinds of department stores have long sheets in nice designs?????</p>

<p>check out this site, they have nice stuff, CHEAP, and I hate Walmart.</p>

<p>I'm getting my sheets from Lands End. They have them at Linens 'n Things too. Anywhere you look that has XL sheets will fit the bed. From what i hear you REALLY don't want to buy the dorm linens in that little flier that was sent out. Rumor is they don't last long and stain other laundry...</p>

<p>ok...so what do we need to buy??</p>

<p>HOW MANY pillowcases, sheets, etc...and how many pillows...etc...</p>

<p>and also...what is the size called? is it XL twin?????</p>

<p>i am really lost w all this!</p>

<p>haha youre funny. usually 2 pillowcases enough. one pillow is all you need (unless you wanna decorate your bed with little pillows, but thats up to you) i believe it is XL twin that you need.</p>

<p>haha........thank u...lol
what about sheets? i really don't even know what fitted sheets are...lol...
are they the duvet cover things or the other thing that goes on your actual mattress?? haha...im serious though lol</p>

<p>you need:</p>

<p>fitted sheet
the sheet
then the comforter (which might have a duvet cover, but not needed)</p>

<p>thats all.... unless you want a blanket in between your comforter and sheet, but i dont think you need it</p>

<p>thanks so much!</p>

<p>do u have a facebook? whats ur email?...u should befriend me lol</p>

<p>yes i do have a facebook!!! my name is Vanessa De Jesus .... ADD ME!!! yay! socal girls!!!</p>
