    Please advise as to what the expected attire is for the campus visit & tour?

    I'm curious about both the applicant and guests.

    We are planning on business casual such as khakis and a polo shirt but is there an expectation for the applicant to wear a tie or something more professional?

    Appreciate feedback.

    Thank you.

    No, you will be fine in khakis and a polo. The campus is on a hill. The most important thing is comfortable shoes. :)

    Yeah, don't wear a suit. Connecticut might be north, but it's hot there this time of year. A polo shirt is just fine.

    Have fun and enjoy! Swing by the exchange and buy some CGA swag. You don't appreciate the campus when you're a cadet, it's only before you become a cadet or after you graduate that you realize how nice and cozy it all is...
