Once in Greenville and on campus, please refer to the ECU map at Bloxton House (Friday night's reception) and Mendenhall (Saturday's conference) are across a lawn from each other. Viewing the campus map, Mendenhall is the large building just above the largest building (the Student Recreation Center) at the bottom of the map. Bloxton House is the small, partially obscured building just to the left of Mendenhall.

Parking will be plentiful, free, and located to the right of Mendenhall on the campus map. Avoid parking in metered or handicapped spaces. Find Ken Wilburn as soon as you arrive to receive your parking permit. Should you receive a ticket in the meantime, give it to Ken Wilburn to resolve.
