Weather and Weekend Attire
In Rhode Island, temperatures on Memorial Day weekend have been as high as 90 degrees or as low as 50 and rain is always a possibility. We strongly advise you to bring an umbrella and suitable clothing for variable weather. Most events are casual. Campus Dance attire is a personal choice ranging from gowns and tuxedos to jeans and Bermuda shorts.
For those who like the convenience (and the nostalgia) of staying on campus, rooms are available in Machado House on Prospect Street. For specific information regarding pricing, deadlines, and to request a reservation, please visit the Office of Residential Life. Please specify that you are requesting to stay in Machado House as part of the Medical School group.
