Attire for the weekend is usually casual. You are welcome to come “dressy casual” for the evening dinner, but it is not a requirement. The next question is usually, "What is dressy casual?" There are a mix of khakis or nice slacks, golf/button-down shirts or blouses and simple dresses to the class dinner—anything goes. It can be cold or warm in the buildings, depending on the weather, so consider bringing layers. Check the weather forecast as the weekend approaches.
