The academy is fairly a casual and the weather in Beirut is hot. Most participants wear jeans and shirts for the majority of the two weeks–nothing fancy or formal is necessary.

Although most students will wear shorts, jeans and casual summer dresses most of the time, there will be a handful of slightly more formal occasions such as the farewell dinner gathering, but keep the clothing light.

Note that we will take two field trips (see below), and some walking will be involved. You can also take a walk on the corniche after the day ends at the academy and during the weekends, so make sure to pack your sneakers.

You should also pack some swimming and beach clothes, as we are very close to the sea and you can utilize AUB’s beach or any of the numerous swimming areas nearby. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen.
