ITW Uniform Guidelines

General Guidelines:

The idea of a uniform is to be uniform. In past ITWs some students have tried to be very “creative” in establishing their own identity or style. However, this has sacrificed the uniformity that we are trying to achieve. This is not a special meeting… this is Intensive Training Week!

Please be respectful of our request that you wear the uniform without your special touches added to it. Thank you in advance for complying with the uniform requirements of Hope Corps.

NOTE: No jewelery of any kind is to be worn during the ITW, including wedding rings. Sleeves are to be worn below the elbow, this includes the off day.
