Road Trips to the Real World
Make the Most of Your Road Trip
Plan to arrive 15 minutes early so that you have time to collect yourself and avoid rushing in at the last minute. Review the directions to your site visit and allow extra driving time to anticipate rush-hour traffic. Timeliness is both a reflection of you and the EACE Road Trip. Please arrive on time.
Please note that each site has its own recommendations for dress/footwear. “Business casual” is a medium between professional and casual. Suits, jackets and ties are not necessary for business casual, but do avoid wearing jeans, tee shirts, and sneakers. Use your own common sense when dressing for the site visit. When in doubt, it's better to dress “too professionally” than “too casually.”
Although a site visit is not an interview, you are still expected to be on your best behavior. As a representative of your college, you can give employers a positive impression by showing an interest in the day’s activities and asking well-researched questions. Avoid side-bar conservations during the site visit and use the best possible etiquette.
Check Your Email
You will be receiving occasional email notices about the site visit, so be sure to check your email regularly.
There are no cancelations and there will be no refunds. In case of an emergency cancellation, within 24 hours, please make sure you contact the site coordinator, so they know you will not be attending.
If the site is cancelled due to a snow emergency, the coordinator of each site will contact registered students via email prior to the day of the visit to let you know the process for you to use if there is snow or other inclement weather. In the case that a site visit is canceled, students will receive a refund.
