Where can I sit and socialize with my friends?

Informal socializing is a highlight of every Golden Scots Celebration. In the evening, there is a social hour in the main lounge of the residence hall. Beverages and snacks are provided (compliments of the Alumni Association) and copies of yearbooks are available for viewing. Suites in Bowers Hall also have lounges for small gatherings.

What should I pack?

We recommend casual clothes during the day and business casual in the evening. Bring umbrellas and sweaters/jackets in case of rain, chilly weather or cool air-conditioned buildings.

Bring your own alarm clock if you need an alarm. Bed linens, a blanket, a pillow, towels, a bar of soap and a few hangers will be provided for each guest.

Please pack necessary toiletries and, because bathrooms enter from a common area, we suggest a bathrobe.

Are pets allowed on campus?

Sorry, pets are not allowed on campus.

If I need a special diet, can arrangements be made?

Yes, please indicate special dietary requirements on the Registration Form.

Will there be wireless access to the Internet?

Yes, wireless Internet is available across campus and in residence halls.
