Thursday night, all ILC members met at the El Cerrito High School Library for one big Orientation before each of our respective trips. We were reminded of what was expected of us and were given all of the specifics of our trips. We were told what clothing to bring and what we would need in our dorm rooms. We were told what we could borrow from Don and how much we could pack.
We eventually broke up into groups depending on what school we're attending. While Ms. Neal was talking to us about the food there and about what we needed to bring vs. what we could buy there, I felt strange. It was strange to think that in less than a month, we would be off to Cornell. I am starting to think that it won't actually hit me that we're going until we are on the plane, or maybe not even until we actually see Cornell.
