*We will be providing shuttles; however, we will need to know flight information by September 30th. After this date, we cannot guarantee shuttles for students and campuses will be responsible for making arrangements for their students. 


Like all Bonner Congress meetings, participants will be housed with the host students (in this case, W&L students) in residence halls and apartments both on- and off-campus, gyms, and local churches. This is a free option and is automatically arranged when you register for the conference. Be prepared to sleep on floors and couches. Just be sure to bring a sleeping bag and pillow!


  • Comfortable clothing and shoes. Casual is fine
  • Bedding (Sleeping bag/Blanket) and pillow
