The parking information I gave in the last post seems to be out of date. There has been a lot of construction in the area of the Carolyn Tanner Irish Humanities Building, and the road that I indicated in the map is now blocked.

The parking area in yellow highlighter is still accessible but it’s now accessible through an enterance to the parking area above the hatchmarks in the map I posted in the last blog entry. There is a sign pointing to it that says, “High School Football General Parking.”  Follow that down through that small lot and into the larger lot. The CTIHB will be the large new building at the corner of that larger lot as seen in the map.

This just came to my attention a few minutes ago. Sorry for any inconvenience.
