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.

 

Food

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.

Clothing

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.
