When & Where
MAP SHOWING WHERE TO PARK AND WHERE TO ENTER
The Expo is being held in the Ballroom on the 3rd Floor of the Nigh University Center at the University of Central Oklahoma. Set your turn by turn directions to "755 East Main Street, Edmond, OK 73034" which should take you to the parking lot just east of the NUC.
If you park in the lot closest to the building on the east you may need to take a parking claim ticket to enter the lot. Our understanding is that you only pay as you exit and that they shouldn't be collecting parking fees after 6pm. So most folks should have to pay. That said, the next to the east is not a paid lot so feel free to use that as well.
ENTER THROUGH THE NORTH DOORS
Enter north most doors on the east side of the Nigh University Center. You'll actuall be entering on the second level so take one flight of stairs up and you'll see the entrance to the Ballroom (Exhibit Hall - doors open at 6) and just across the hall is the room for the Seminar.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS
The Expo is even more fun when you meet your friends there so please be sure to invite them via email, FaceBook or even the old fashioned telephone! It's a fun, free way to kick off the new school year!
