Is there accommodations available? What about meals?

We have a few different hotel options that have given us special pricing for our students.  There is no full meal plan available.  There are plenty of restaurants around Morden/Winkler.  There are fridges and microwaves in every hotel room as well.  Make sure you are prepared to cover meals yourself.
