Workshop Resources






When you come into the parking lot off of Tune Ave, you will turn right directly under the marquee sign. This will lead you around the back of the East Campus Building and will flow into the side parking lot. This is the best place for you to park. You will enter through that side entrance (there will be a sign on the door). Once you enter, you will turn left by the vending machines. Room 105 is the second classroom on the left.
