Location and Accommodations
The program will be held at the Penn State University Park campus. The campus is in the center of the state, fifteen miles south of Interstate 80, on Routes 26 and 322 (Directions and maps will be sent to you with your registration materials).
American, Delta, and United Airlines serve the State College/University Park Airport, located three miles from the course site. Rental cars, limousines, and taxi services are available at the airport.
If you are planning on parking on Penn State University Park campus, you will have to visit one of the kiosk booths or contact a transportation officer to obtain a visitor's parking pass to park at the Earth and Engineering Sciences Building.
Participants are encouraged to stay at The Atherton Hotel because many of the short course activities will take place at that facility.
