2013: Conference Reminders

Conference Location. The IPSA conference will be held in Carter Hall which is located in University Center West. If you are not familiar with the USI Campus, this building is marked on the campus map as UC West. The map is located here. You can’t miss the building – just aim for the “cone.”

Parking on the USI Campus. USI has both paid and *FREE* parking. There is a pay lot right next to University Center West (Lots N and I on the campus map). Pay lot rates can be found at this link. (The most you would pay is $8). However, you can walk anywhere on our campus in 10 minutes or less, so I recommend saving your money. Lot C, Lot D, and Lot H are all fairly close and usually have spaces as long as you park early enough. FYI: Be sure to read the signs if you park in Lots D, E, or F – the back rows in some of these lots are reserved for the dorms and may be ticketed.

REMEMBER: USI IS ON CENTRAL TIME (DAYLIGHT SAVINGS).

More information, including directions for presenters, can be found on the official memo.
