Dress Code:

Here are a few guidelines on the dress code:
• Shirts need to be loose fitting, with a sleeve (no inappropriate slogans)
• Shorts & skirts must touch the knee
• Comfortable shoes
• In case you have any free time at the pool, bring a one-piece swimsuit.
• Please note that meeting rooms are typically cold which is why we suggest you bring a sweatshirt.
• No hats should be worn in the meeting room
• Remember please dress very modestly. If any of our SLU staff has a problem with what you are wearing, you will be asked to change. Basic rule: "err on the side of caution."

For groups, it is your responsibility to arrange for your own transportation to and from the Hotel. Transportation will be provided for you during the conference.

For singles (those not attending in a group) who are flying, students will be met at the baggage claim areas for the respective airlines on which they are flying. Due to Transportation Safety Administration regulations we are unable to meet students at the gate. We are not able to accept unaccompanied minors flying on any airline. Students will be put on a commercial shuttle service or a taxi with other program participants and will be transported to the program hotel. At the end of the program, approximately 2:30 pm, students will be put on a commercial shuttle service or a taxi with other program participants and transported back to the airport.

How can I be preparing now for my SLU experience?

First of all, you can decide that you are going to get the most you can out of the experience by fully engaging in the sessions and training. We also encourage you to pray about what the Lord is going to teach you while you are at SLU and how He wants to use you to impact the world. READ as much as you can…the Bible, leadership material, newspapers, etc. For a suggested reading list, visit RESOURCES on our website

What do I do if I have dietary restrictions or food allergies?

If you have special dietary restrictions or food allergies, they must be submitted to SLU when you fill out your student profile. If something comes up after completing this in order for SLU to arrange for your dietary needs, you can update your registration information up to 15 days before the program begins. Please be sure to offer specifics on what you cannot eat and what can be substituted. We will make every effort to accommodate, but there may be certain times when this is not possible. We strongly recommend that you bring prepared foods or snacks with you that are compliant with your dietary needs.

I am bringing my car to SLU. Do I need to pay for parking?

Payment for parking varies according to hotel property. You can confirm this with the hotel once you register for SLU. You should plan on parking your car and not using it until the last SLU session is completed.

Do you recommend getting the travel insurance?
