All daytime programming will take place in the Plemmons Student Union on the campus of Appalachian State University.  The Wednesday evening class dinner will be held in the Grandview Ballroom of the Kidd Brewer Stadium, also on the App State campus.

A pdf with directions to all Orientation session locations is available through the “directions” button below, and directions are also embedded in the Session Workbook. Google Maps links to each location are included both documents. We recommend you download the pdf to whatever device you use for navigation and use the links to guide you to each destination.

Please register your vehicles in advance (detailed instructions below) and review all directions in advance to estimate drive times and become familiar with parking instructions. Be sure to leave enough time for the 10-15 minute walk from the parking deck to to the Student Union.  If that distance presents a problem for you, let us know so we can make other arrangements.

Parking on campus is tight, and carpooling with classmates is encouraged. You may also consider walking to campus from the hotel—it’s less than a mile.
