Food for Class:
You don't really need to have your daily coffee before class unless you can't function without it as you will be given ample opportunity to make and drink many coffees during the classes. We also recommend that you consider bringing some snacks, drinks, whatever would make you most comfortable. When it comes to lunch, we recommend that you bring a brown bag lunch and not go out for lunch so you don't need to leave the classroom. Often times students will lose time in the classroom because the restaurant they went to was busy.
