News You Can Use

By Eboni Boykin (St. Louis, MO)

Just for future reference, (you’ll thank me for this later, future SJPers) I think we need to be told to bring our own blankets to sleep with! I’ve talked to several other students and everyone seems to agree that our blankets are gross!

Unfortunately the "What Not To Bring" list was very clear in telling us not to bring blankets, and so I went along with that. Some of my fellow campers were a bit smarter than me in that they brought their own blankets. Shout out to you lucky ones, and to the not so lucky ones like myself—you’re not alone.

So there you have it. The covers are hairy and the pillows smell like arm pits!

It is the only not so great thing I’ve experienced here this week and it’s definitely not the most important part of the program. To be sure, I’m usually so exhausted by the time I get back the dorm that I’d pretty much pass out on anything.

And so my concern has been uncovered, much like me when I’m trying to sleep.

  1. Eboni is definitely right! I was one of the fortunate ones and thought ahead and brought my own blanket. It is true though when I saw the blanket I had in my room i literally said "euuuu grosss im glad i brought y blanket!" So future SJP make sure to take this blog into consideration.
