Additional Info
Online Map
The competition will be held in the Paterakis Dining Hall, in the St. John student center (FF on the map)
Please park in the Woods parking lot ( II on the map).

To get to the venue, from McDonogh road, turn onto Lamborne road ( there are several roads that will take you onto campus but only Lamborne will get you where you want to go). Go straight on Lamborne. The first big building you will see on your right is the St. John Student Center; this is where the competition is being held. Past that, on the left, is the Woods parking lot. You will want to park here, and then it is a short walk across the street and up the stairs to the venue.

I did my best attempt at a map here.
