OTHER INFORMATION


TIME:  All times are Eastern Standard.

DIRECTIONS: Directions to Danville can be found on the Centre College web site, www.centre.edu, under "Visitors Center."  If you come in on US 150, US 127, or KY 34, you will eventually end up on Main Street, which runs past the campus.  Most of the campus buildings are one block south of Main on Walnut Street.  You can access a map of Danville on the Danville web site, www.danville-ky.com.

PARKING:  Parking areas are numbered 2 on the campus map.  The unnumbered lot next to Carnegie is usually full on Friday, but if you are feeling lucky you could take a turn through it.  It does have the closest handicapped spaces, however, and they are usually open.  I suggest you try the lots next to the buildings numbered 37 (Boles Natatorium), 34 (East Hall), or 27 (Blanton House).  East Hall and Blanton House have both been razed and turned into more parking spaces since this map was published.  (The entrance to the East Hall lot is directly across from S. 5th St., not in the middle of the block as the map indicates.)  You may also find a spot on College Street next to Carnegie, but there is no parking on West Walnut Street.  You can also stop in the lot next to Carnegie long enough to get help from the students who will be working at the registration desk.

REGISTRATION:  You can register and pick up your program and name tag in the Davidson Room, on the first floor of Old Carnegie (#42 on the map).

FOOD: Soft drinks and coffee will be available throughout the meeting.  Juice, coffee, tea and muffins will be available in the Davidson Room on Saturday morning.  Appetizers and punch will be served at the social hour Friday evening.  There are several eating places and food markets in the vicinity of the campus.  Boyle is a dry county.
