Dress for Grad School Visit Day

<p>I was just wondering what the dress code is typically for Grad School Visit Days? I got accepted into a graduate program and am flying in for a weekend to meet the department. The itinerary includes dinner, lunches, and meetings with all the faculty. How should I dress? Thanks.</p>

<p>Business casual is a safe bet.</p>

<p>that might obviously depend on your field, from my experience (bio) people dress casual, a nice shirt certainly won’t hurt, but a tie is probably over the top (assuming you are a guy).</p>

<p>Basically, don’t look like a slob.</p>

<p>I was wondering the same thing. For my visit day, there will be interviews for additional fellowships and awards. Am I expected to bring anything extra (resume, etc) or is showing up and talking good enough? It is also a full day event starting with breakfast and ending with after dinner events.</p>

<p>You would be advised to wear your best victorian or edwardian gear. Spats are a necessity.</p>
