Class of 2024 Bulletin Board
Hi all: I promised last week to send along an email with the summer residency dates, so here you are: Saturday, June 3 to Sunday June 11, 2023. We start on Saturday morning and wind up on Sunday June 11 at around 4 or 5 pm. So, if you are coming from out of town, you will likely want to arrive the evening of June 2. You could depart the evening of June 11.

If you wish to stay on campus, you should contact Conference Services. They have not yet posted their summer 2023 rates, but their 2022 rates and contact info may be found here. There are also student residence rooms available at Dalhousie. You're not obliged to stay on campus: hotels and AirBnB are also an option.

More info will follow from Dean and Gillian as residency details are finalized.
