YEBW Packing List

At YEBW, students get to stay and study on a college campus for a full week: Sunday to Saturday! Being away from home can be hard and we want you to feel as comfortable and prepared as possible... Before arrival, please note: Most meals and materials will be provided during your time with us.



Three meals a day are provided for students except for Sunday (arrival day); only dinner will be served. Meals

are served buffet-style so that students may make their own food selections while taking into consideration

any dietary modifications they may need.


Informal, casual attire is appropriate for the majority of YEBW.

• Shoes and shirts are required in the dining halls, meetings and general assemblies.

• Business professional attire is required during the Friday Presentations.

Example: dress/skirt/slacks/blouse/button-up/blazer/tie.

• The Etiquette Dinner on Wednesday is business casual; dresses/blouse/lacks/nice jeans/sport jackets

are appropriate.

• Clothing or jewelry that references alcohol, drugs, gangs or violence are prohibited. Dress that

constitutes a safety hazard or disrupts the optimum learning environment is discouraged at the

discretion of YEBW Staff.
