Details to remember:

  1. Order a sack lunch from your dorm by Tuesday noon and bring with it something to drink for Wednesday.

  2. Dress for the plays is informal but be sure to wear something warm for the outdoor performances. You could be sitting for three hours in 50ish temperatures. We have even experienced rain in the past, but the play goes on; and we stay. If it looks like rain we will carry garbage bags to be worn as rain suits.

  3. Bring soap and toilet articles. Towels and bedding are supplied.

  4. Let us know before we leave Chico if you have a medical condition that might become a problem on our trip so we might better respond should the occasion arise. Bring personal identification and a health insurance card if you have one.

  5. Be on time for the plays. You should be seated ten minutes before curtain time. If you are late you will not be seated until an intermission. Silence all cell phones and similar beeping devices before the curtain.

  6. Bring money for food or an ATM card. Unless you can survive on edibles from a Safeway, between the residence hall and the theater complex, you should plan on $20.00 a day for food.

  7. While in Ashland all transportation is on your own. Ashland is a great town for walking. It is about a mile from the dorms to the theater. There is a city bus available until about 6 p.m.

  8. Take notes on the plays and related experiences for your essay.

  9. Anyone caught doing drugs or alcohol on this field trip - or any field trip - will be referred to Judicial Affairs for expulsion from GST. (We lost three students this way a few years ago. Don't make us lose you.)
  10. Behave as adults ought to behave. Remember that you are not the only person in the world.
