Notes on Attire

All events for this session are business casual attire, with the exception of the Tuesday optional activity and the Wednesday class dinner. “Business casual” means you don’t need to be in a suit but you should look polished and professional. Class dinners are always casual attire. Closed-toed shoes are required for the Tuesday tour and volunteer shift and casual attire is recommended.

We work hard to have a comfortable room temperature in all meeting locations, but “comfortable” is different for everyone.  We recommend layers or bringing a light sweater or jacket just in case.



Meals and Snacks

LNC believes in keeping you well-fueled by presenting a variety of options at meals and breaks. Breakfasts are typically optional. For Wednesday only, breakfast will be required since this is the first in-person meeting for members of Class XXVIII.  For Thursday (and other sessions), breakfasts are always optional but encouraged. They provide an extra opportunity to engage with your classmates, reflect on session content, and settle in for the day ahead. The Wednesday class dinner is required and counts towards the program attendance requirement.



  • Breakfast 7:30 – 8:15 (required for this breakfast only)
  • Morning break with snacks and beverages
  • Lunch
  • Class dinner (required part of session programming)


  • Breakfast 7:00 – 7:45 (optional, note that breakfast is served at the hotel prior to individual transportation to Harris Teeter)
  • Brunch at UNC Charlotte
