What do we need to bring?
It’s recommended to bring a flash drive to save your projects (NOTE, the University deletes items on computer hard drives in the labs each night, so if you want your work saved, you MUST bring something to save on), notebook, & writing utensil.
What do we need to bring if we’re staying overnight?
The university provides a shower curtain and toilet paper. Bring bedding and toiletries. There is a kitchenette in the lounge area of each floor, private bathrooms (shared with one roommate). The cost of breakfast will be covered by your registration fee. You will have wifi in the lounge, and most likely your room, and will have access to the main rec center which is the neighboring building.
You will need to bring:
Bedding (sheets, pillow, blanket)
Toiletries & Personal items
Do we need to behave at this thing?
The quick answer here is “Yes.”
Each delegate is expected to represent his or her school (and more importantly, themselves) appropriately. No alcohol, drugs or smoking will be tolerated.
From the time camp starts, to the time it ends each day, student delegates are not allowed to ride in or drive any car. Only the Workshop Director may make exceptions. Students may use cars only to drive to and from campus. The workshop reserves the right to send any student home who does not conform to acceptable standards. No refunds will be given to students who are sent home.
Is there a chance I’ll be able to be a part of this site or on a site associated with Lindenwood University sometime?
By registering, you give your permission for us to use photos of you at the workshop and the work you create at camp on material associated with this camp for Media Now – STL and Lindenwood University. If you prefer to not be included on any of the sites or in any promo material about this camp or for future camps, send us a written request prior to camp and we will make sure you are not included.
How do I earn college credit by attending this workshop?
Lindenwood University, our partner and host, will offer one college credit at $60 to advisers who participate in the three-day workshop. Advisers will need to bring checks made out to Lindenwood University (or cash) with you to check-in on June 23. You will be required to complete an additional assignment that will be provided to you at that time. That assignment will be due on July 15. Contact us with any additional questions on that particular piece. The students (juniors and seniors) can also earn up to two college credits at $60 each by completing an assignment on the same timeline.
I’m from out of town, where can I stay?
On campus housing is available. There are two options – a two night (add $50) or a three night stay (add $75).
