  • Parking
    New for 2014: Parking permits are now required.

    Be sure you park in the right parking lot. The first parking lot (on the right as you come in Friday Center Drive) is reserved staff/student parking — don't park there. Go a little further; you'll see the Friday Center. Take the first right after you pass the building. Parking is on the left. Parking map
