Participants should plan to arrive at Willamette's campus on Saturday, August 15 between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Once your registration has been confirmed you will receive an email (to your Willamette University email address) with detailed information about the check-in process and important forms to complete and return.


3. What should I bring?

Participants are emailed a complete packing list upon registering for NSOCO. Participants should bring clothing for six days that can get dirty, shoes you can work in, a pillow, water bottle, and a sleeping bag. The items you need for NSOCO need to be packed in a separate bag before arriving to campus as you will not have time to pack once you arrive.

Cancellation requests must be made in writing by July 24, 2015. The factors to be considered include emergency situations beyond your control.


7. Do I need to bring any money?

While you will not need money you may chose to bring a small amount in case you want to purchase extra snacks or souvenirs during the trip.
