Do I need to bring a Medical Release Form?
GROUPS: Group leaders must bring a medical release form for any minors attending without a parent/guardian and keep those forms with you at all times during the program. Medical release forms must empower your group leader (not SLU) to authorize medical treatment for the students you are bringing to the program.
SINGLES: Any student attending without a chaperone must complete the SLU Medical Release Form during the online registration process.
How are students roomed together at SLU 101?
As part of the registration process, both groups and individuals must submit a rooming list no later than 45 days before the program.
Tuition rates are based on four people sharing a room. If you are unable to fill a room completely, you may request that SLU fill those empty spots with another student(s). If SLU is unable to fill the room, additional charges will apply ($89 per empty spot). You may be billed for this after the final payment date, as necessary. Rollaway beds are not available.
SLU will automatically place you in a room with up to three other student attendees of the same gender based on the following guidelines:
- Rooms may not be co-ed unless both attendees are members of the same family.
- One individual student under 18 cannot be in a room by themselves.
- SLU will not room an under-18 student with anyone over 18 if they are not from the same group.
I am driving to SLU 101. Do I need to pay for parking?
Self-parking is complimentary for the SLU group. You should plan on parking your vehicle and not using it till the last SLU session is completed.
I am flying to SLU 101. Is transportation provided to/from the airport?
Groups are responsible for their own transportation between the airport and the hotel. Once you arrive at the hotel, transportation to/from the parks is included with the conference registration.
For singles/individuals, an SLU team member will meet students at the baggage claim areas for the respective airlines on which they are flying. For this purpose, flight information has be submitted to SLU by the deadline. Due to TSA regulations, we are unable to meet students at the gate. We are not able to accept unaccompanied minors flying on any airline. Students will be put on a commercial shuttle service or a taxi with other program participants and will be transported to the program hotel. At the end of the week at approximately 1:00pm, students will be put on a commercial shuttle service or a taxi with other program participants and transported back to the airport.

Travel protection must be added with the initial registration and cannot be added at a later date. Names of individuals purchasing travel protection must be provided at registration.

What is the dress code for SLU 101?
As we train young leaders, we want them to grasp the importance of dressing appropriately for the environment and maintaining an appearance that honors Christ. Thus we have established a few guidelines for your time at SLU 101:
- Shirts should fully cover the front, back, and sides. Any sleeveless shirts should have a strap at least "3 fingers" width across. No spaghetti straps, racerback tops, or tanks with oversized armholes should be worn.
- Any shorts (including athletic shorts) should be at least "fingertip" or "mid-thigh" length, whichever is most modest or virtuous as we strive to honor Christ in this aspect of our lives. Additionally, skirts or dresses should come to no more than 4 inches above the knee.
The dress code applies to all parts of the conference experience--sessions, meals, parks, etc. and applies to both students and adult leaders. If anyone chooses to dress outside these guidelines, you may be asked to change by an SLU Staff member.
