Schedule and Housing Update
Check in for guard, percussion, and leaders on the 4th will be at 9:30 AM and check in for woodwind and brass on the 8th will begin at 8:30 AM (check the website for your section’s specific check in time) on the 1st floor of the Fine Arts building. Here you will receive your 2018 RB shirt, order white shoes, and receive your meal card for camp.
More Housing information will follow. Bottom line bring your stuff for the semester when you come to camp.
The MSU Housing Office will notify all on-campus students of their permanent housing assignments on MyGate during the third week of July(if they haven't already).
Guard/Percussion/Leaders – After check-in on Saturday the 4th, you will move into temporary housing until the evening of Tuesday the 7th. If you live anywhere on-campus, you should be able to store belongings in your permanent room. Members living in some dorms (TBA soon – check racerband.com often) will be able to completely move into their permanent rooms when they come to campus on the 4th - no temporary housing necessary (we will keep you posted).
Off-campus members should contact their appropriate housing offices to make sure they can move-in. If you are a COMMUTER AND a member of the GUARD, PERCUSSION, or LEADER groups, AND need housing for camp, please email Gabby Rapp at email@example.com. MSU temporary housing Aug 4th-7th may not be available for those living OFF campus in the fall!
Brass/Woodwinds – All on-campus brass and woodwind players move into their permanent housing assignments on the morning of Wednesday the 8th. Check the schedule for check-in times. Off-campus residents should contact their appropriate housing offices to make sure they can move-in. If you are a COMMUTER and a member of the BRASS or WOODWIND section, AND need housing for camp, please email Gabby Rapp, at firstname.lastname@example.org
**Special requests for early or late move-in are nearly impossible because of RA Training**
**Final Information regarding camp housing will posted on racerband.com and Facebook Group!!** **NO REHEARSAL TIME WILL BE MISSED TO MOVE IN/OUT**
What to Bring
It’s up you, but it would be wise to bring all your stuff for the semester. You will be moving in earlier than other regular students. Some members in the past have chosen to have their parents bring everything on Sunday, August 12th since we don’t practice until 1 PM. That’s also when many other students arrive – it can become a traffic jam.
Guard, Percussion, and Leaders living in temporary housing from August 4th-7th may also bring everything. You will be able to store your belongings in your actual room for the fall, while living in temporary housing for 3 days. However, you should aim to pack a separate small suitcase (include bedding) to live out of for 3 days so you don’t have to take all your belongings into temporary housing. Trust us – it’s a lot easier.
