Will meals be provided?
On the day of the conference, a light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Advisors, if your delegates have any dietary restrictions, please indicate this in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org after registering and we will plan to accommodate.
Will there be transportation from the Metro-North train station?
Yes! For delegations that wish to commute by Metro-North Rail, the conference will provide a bus driven by an Ursuline faculty member to transport delegations from Crestwood Station to the school. If your delegation will be using this service, please indicate that on the registration form.
What should delegates wear?
Delegates should wear western business attire to any MUN conference. This typically means an appropriate outfit consisting of some of the following articles: blazers, collared shirts, blouses, cardigans, skirts, slacks, flats, dress shoes, and pantsuits. Overall, delegates' attire should reflect how they wish to portray themselves to others in their committee - intelligent, capable young decision-makers.
Will awards be given to delegates?
Awards will be distributed during Closing Ceremonies. There will be committee specific awards, position paper awards, and a Best Delegation award. The committee specific awards will include an Honorable Mention, Outstanding Delegate, and Best Delegate; these are decided on for each committee by that committee's dais. However, we ask that delegates not focus on awards while participating in committee. Our chairs have worked hard to create a welcoming environment for delegates of all experience levels to engage in healthy, informed debate. We encourage negotiation, compromise, and working together rather than the gain of power and influence by means of intimidation, and this will be reflected in the distribution of awards.
What is the policy on technology?
This is a no-laptop conference. This includes computers, cell phones, tablets, and any similar electronic devices. We hope this encourages delegates to thoroughly research their topics and remain focused during debate. All directives will be submitted handwritten to be typed up by our staff.
