Museum Etiquette: Be polite and respectful. Don't touch or get too close to artworks. The museum might be crowded, so take your time and don't rush.

Entertainment on Bus: We have some art flicks/documentaries.
Contact Information: There will be an app to communicate with students and staff via text messaging while on the trip. More information will be available to you after you successfully register.
Important: Be sure to conduct yourself in a manner consistent with the university's mission as an educational institution, as stated in the code of student conduct. You are responsible for your behavior; following the law, getting to the bus on time, and taking care of your needs. If you miss the bus, you are on your own.
