Family Members and Guests

Parents, family members and guests are welcome to attend a Preview session with their new student. We provide a guest schedule that runs concurrent with the student schedule. You can find a sample of the guest schedule here. Note: some programs guests and students are separated.

Students can make a reservation for guests when they sign up online. There is a guest fee of $50 per person. The fee includes meals, overnight housing, parking, materials received during the session and much more. There is NO perforated rate for guests who do not attend the entire session or do not stay in the housing facilities overnight.

All guests who wish to spend the night will be housed in our suit style residence hall with Air Conditioning. The suit style housing includes two rooms connected by a shared bathroom.  If you reserve housing there is a possibility that you will have to share a bathroom with a fellow guest at the program. If you have special restrictions or arrangements (other guest you would like to room or share a bathroom with) please indicate it on your reservation. We will do our best to accommodate requests. Overnight housing is included in the $50 guest reservation fee.  Basic linens are provided in all rooms (sheets, a very light blanket and towel).
