Q: Will GORP be safe to attend?
A: Every precaution will be made to keep all attendees safe and healthy. Facial coverings will be required inside the Union Station Hotel. Social distancing guidelines will be in place. The GORP planning committee will follow the guidelines set by the City of St. Louis.

Q. Will there be parking available if we drive to St. Louis?
A: Yes, the Union Station Hotel has onsite parking for hotel guests. There are also parking lots available within walking distance. Check online for availability.
Q: I just signed up for GORP 2021 and realized that there will be 4 people to one hotel room. I know that it states random assignment, but will you try to pair up co-residents first?
A: Yes, co-residents will be paired up first, but depending on room availability, you may be paired with residents from another school. We will do all we can to protect everyone’s privacy, but you may get to know some residents better than others.
Q: What are the deadlines for registration?
A: Registration closes at 11:59 PM on July 12, 2021. Due to the number of awesome events that we have planned, we are required to provide our vendors and hosts attendance numbers at this time. Make sure to register early!
Q: What do I do if I make a mistake or have questions about my registration?
A: Contact our registration specialists at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: I realized that I won’t be able to attend GORP after registering and the registration deadline has passed. Can I get a refund?
A: We are sorry but after the registration deadline has passed, we cannot offer any refunds.
Q: I see there is a no-show fee for events. What’s that all about?
A: Unfortunately, because of our fixed costs, there will be a $75 charge if you register and don’t come to the banquet on Saturday evening. And if you don’t show up to GORP at all after registering, there will be a $200 fee. Except for the optional activities, GORP is free to residents. That means we have a very tight budget and can’t afford to pay for food and rooms that are not being used. However, if travel restrictions preclude attending GORP, the no-show fee will be waived.
