Q: What will the temperature and climate be like? How should I dress?
A: Your time in College Station is going to be very busy and will involve some light walking, so plan to dress business casual for all sessions. Since the weather and temperature in the conference room are not always predictable, you may want to bring a medium-weight jacket or sweater. College Station can grow rather humid in the spring and summer, but is normally quite dry, hot, and windy even into the fall. Sunglasses and water are recommended for visitors who will be traveling outdoors.
