RAIN BOOTS. Oh lord. Did you know that we call Wake "Lake Forest" on rainy days? The rain can pile up pretty high around the gutters and steps leading up and down the Quad, so please please PLEASE invest in a pair of Rain Boots. Hunters are pretty popular, but Duck Boots, or even funky yellow kid rain boots work just as well on campus. Whatever you know you'll use, that's what you should bring!
"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. The fluviatile trees next the shore are the slender eyelashes which fringe it, and the wooded hills and cliffs around are its overhanging brows." ~Henry David Thoreau
