The suggested dress for the 2017 BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA General Assembly is business casual. Business casual attire typically consists of khakis or slacks, button up shirts, polos, blazers, a dress or skirt. If you are in doubt when packing, please err on the side of caution- athletic wear, clothing with rips/ tears and revealing clothing should be left at home. Remember- you will be representing both your home institution and peer group during the conference.
On Thursday, we recognize school spirit and recommend that you bring an institution or peer education group branded t-shirt or sweatshirt.
Saturday evening there is an Awards Banquet that most participants choose to wear semi-formal dress. Semi-formal attire includes cocktail dresses, slacks/dress pants, ties, vests, blazers.
Each year the BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA hosts a Silent Auction to fundraise for future General Assembly scholarships. Donate a swag bag from your campus bookstore, jewelry or art, or memorabilia for your peers to bid on! Please donate your items to the registration desk and don't forget to bit on items throughout the conference.
Interested in showcasing your peer education group's programs through an exhibit? You will be provided with a six-foot table during the conference. Registration will be open soon!
