Candidates are welcome to spend the night with a current team member if that makes travel to or from easier or just to have the experience. Please let me know ASAP so that I can start the official process for permission for you to stay with our Student Housing office. There is no fee for this. 
For in-coming freshmen who may have family/friends bringing you here: the practices are open but the evaluations are closed, so family and friends have permission to stay and I can discuss with them their options during these hours. 
If there are any questions, please contact head coach Susan Cassidy at [email protected].
