You’ll turn onto campus from Technology drive and from there can park in the ramp. No parking permit is required. Take the stairs/elevator in the ramp to the “Skyway” level (top level), which will bring you into the building right at the security desk. Here you will check in with security - PLEASE HAVE YOUR ID READY. A volunteer will then escort you down to the cafeteria where the event will take place.
