Committing to the SJTDC Experience

  1. ALSAC/St. Jude is investing in you as a Tri Delta leader to bring the mission of St. Jude to your campus communities. By registering, you’ve committed to attending St. Jude Tri Delta Celebration in its entirety. Students may not skip sessions and should not commit to attending unless they are able to completely confirm their availability for July 27 – 29 (including travel time required).

  2. It is both Tri Delta and ALSAC/St. Jude's expectation that St. Jude Tri Delta Celebration is substance and alcohol-free. You will be asked to sign the standards policy at registration.

  3. You will be expected to attend all sessions to ensure you experience the very best of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Aside from approved off-site group activities, we ask that you remain on the hotel and convention center property. This ensures your safety in downtown Memphis.

  4. Students should not plan to stay in Memphis prior to or following the seminar. Written approval from a parent/guardian to visit family in the Memphis area may be granted with prior approval.
