The registration fee covers all food, nonalcoholic beverages, and entertainment for the weekend, plus two drink tickets for alcoholic beverages. Look out for the early bird discount!
  • Do I need to bring legal identification with me?
    • Yes. The school’s alcohol policy is designed to be consistent with the laws of the State of Massachusetts and reflects the need for mutual respect and personal responsibility. Alcohol not provided by the school is prohibited on campus, and possession and serving of alcohol by persons under the age of 21 is prohibited. All bartenders at BB&N events are licensed to serve and may ask for ID. Drugs are not permitted on campus.
