Some recommendations to prepare your trip
Take in consideration that we will have a shuttle during the three days. The first trip will be before the first event of the day and the second trip will be after the last event of the day. This shuttle will only stop in two hotels:
- Courtyard Marriott in downtown
- Best Western Hotel in 104 S Cottage Hill Rd. Carrollton, GA
***Hampton Inn Carrollton is very close to Best Western Hotel and you could walk to take the shuttle.
Our university is quite picky about parking, so you will receive a Parking Pass by email.
Although to avoid dealing with parking, taking the shuttle is very recommended if you stay in one of the three hotels mentioned above.
If you still decide to use your car, I am including here the parking information for your Convenience:
Parking is available in the lot directly behind the campus store. From the lot, walk south across West Georgia Drive to the Technology Learning Center (TLC), then walk through the TLC Lobby and proceed outside. Continue walking for 1 minute, then turn right at the Campus Center entrance. Walk downstairs to the Campus Center Atrium.
For those of you who are joining us at the Thursday Welcoming reception and documentary screening, it will be in the Carrollton Cultural Center downtown (not at the university). You can find parking around the town (or take the shuttle if you stay in one of the three hotels mentioned above).
