For the most part, the weekend is casual. Some people dress more formally for the Saturday night dinner, but it is not required. Please remember that Meadville weather is very unpredictable.

I’m staying on campus. What should I bring?

Bed linens (fitted sheet and top sheet only) and towels are provided in all locations, but please keep in mind that these are rental linens. Blankets are not provided, so plan to bring your own blanket for comfort. Please bring your own pillow, as they are not provided. If you are flying, we have a few extra pillows available on campus. Personal toiletry items are needed. Please bring hangers if you wish to hang clothing, as they are not provided. The majority of on-campus accommodations have shared bathrooms.
