Your first class meeting depends on the number of credits: three credits–Saturday at 4 p.m.; two credits–Monday at 8 a.m.; and one credit–Friday at 4 p.m.

Accommodations are limited so make your reservations soon. If your course is cancelled or you drop it, it’s easier to cancel reservations than run the risk of no vacancies. As a resort town, the average hotel price is over $100/night. Remember online travel sites don't usually give refunds.
