Please check in at the Deans’ Office upon your arrival.
Boarders should plan to host their visiting siblings in their dorm rooms or enlist other boarder hosts on the basis of their siblings’ genders. Day students are encouraged to participate during the day and are welcome to make arrangements to stay with friends in the dorms as well.
To participate, please fill out the online registration form by Wednesday, April 10, 2019. You will also need to complete the Emergency Information/Permission to Treat form and bring this with you when you arrive on campus that weekend.
