What to Wear

For the majority of the Summit, the dress code is business casual. Comfortable closed-toed shoes are essential for the Summit since delegates will be walking a lot and visiting several hospital labs. When packing, please check online weather conditions for the cities of Boston and Waltham before the Summit to have an accurate idea of what to pack. Delegates are strongly encouraged to pack with layers in mind. While it can be very hot and humid in Boston during the summer months, the weather is unpredictable and many of the Summit venues can be very chilly due to their air conditioning. Laundry facilities are available in the residence halls and GYS will provide detergent for the delegates upon request.

The academic rigor of the Summit calls for appropriate attire, but not a large investment on the part of families. Therefore, we encourage families not to spend additional money on clothing. Please contact Summit Director, Lydia Casmier, if you have concerns about the dress code at precollege@brandeis.edu.
