The below part of this page contains information about your Induction Weekend, including a packing list. It will not contain much information about the events within an Induction Weekend, which is intentional. Some of the more meaningful parts of the weekend derive much of their significance from the fact that there are no preconception about them. Additionally, the reflection afforded candidates by the Induction Weekend means that your experience will be unique, colored more by your own personality and nature than by the experiences of others. In the interest of transparency, however, if your parents have any questions about the details of the induction weekend, they should feel free to contact us at [email protected] and [email protected]. We will be happy to answer their questions.
You should bring the following things to your Induction Weekend. Please refrain from bringing any smellables (food, anything scented to smell like food, etc.).
Candidates will be informed when the next Induction Weekend will be held through email. The cost for candidates to attend the Induction Weekend is indicated in the registration link and covers your sash, handbook, lodge flap, a year’s membership, food and the cost of running the Induction Weekend.
