Instructions for Dropping off and Picking Up Students:  MAP

We encourage students to have someone drive them to and from this event. Driving home in the morning after staying up all night can be hazardous. We also encourage you to carpool as much as possible to reduce the amount of traffic, as there will be 1500 students and 300 volunteers coming to the arena at once.

For the Drop Off/Pick Up Location, there will be signs directing you. The location originates from Jefferson Ave. You can put Sheakley Athletics Center in your GPS (or click on link below) to get you to the right area, then follow signs and directions below.
