WHAT TO BRING/WEAR
We recommend that all campers bring a notebook and pen/pencil. Laptops are not recommended unless absolutely necessary. The dress code is casual, but keep in mind that you may be meeting with future colleagues or employers!
We will provide a light breakfast (including coffee and tea), lunch, an afternoon snack, and water throughout the day. If you require additional snacks or beverages, please feel free to bring them.
Gender-neutral restrooms will be available on the third floor of Tyler Haynes Commons.
While we will do out best to give specific content notes during each session, it's possible that there will be mention of mental illness, gender-based harassment, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other sensitive topics. We will provide a quiet space for anyone who needs to opt out of a session.
