Anyone going to the Admitted Students reception on April 1st?  What is the dress code for something like that?  I'm thinking business casual, but am not the most fashion conscious person in the world.

i'm going also, and I'm a firm believer in the idea that you can't overdress to something like that, so I may not wear a full suit (basically because I don't have one that fits) but i'll definatly wear a shirt and tie

I'll probably do business casual.  A nice pair of pants and a dress shirt.  Probably no tie.  Anyone else on here going?

I forgot to register for it in time so I'm going to the beach instead, I think it starts at 10, but I would call them, at least to let them know you are coming and if it's okay for you to show up without registering

why don't you wear sweatpants, that'll be a nice way to impress the people who are going to be evaluating you for the next three years.  Damn maybe if you wore a shirt tie slacks and jacket (we call them suits) you can take the jacket off if you feel overdressed.  Just a thought thought.

Just came home from Widener...ok, I came home about 6 hours ago, but I took a nap.  I have to say I came away floored at how awesome the school is.  I got to hear Prof Johnston speak and I want him for Civ Pro.  The campus is smallish, but everything you need is right there.

All in all, I am really amped about going there now.  I can't wait until Aug 14th.

BTW, there was not one prospective student who was super dressed up.  Many were in jeans and golf shirts.  Orientation will probably be different, but I can't put too much stock into a function at which no one really asked for your name after registration and there were no name tags.  I seriously doubt anyone of importance is going to remember in August what you wore in April, especially when you were but a face in the crowd.

But then, what do I know.
