Clothing

The best advice is to pack light. Lightweight clothing is recommended.
We suggest a dress for women and a sport coat and tie for men for special occasions.

  • Other international students suggest that you bring some extra money for clothes and shopping at the malls once you get an idea of what other students are wearing.
