Fairs
As you enter the MAIN campus entrance, follow the directional signs. Fair parking is at the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122), on the left hand side as you enter campus.  Fairs are held in many diffferent locations, so it is our practice to shuttle vistors to fair locations.  Shuttles will run from the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122) to the fair location.  Our shuttle service allows you to load materials directly from your car to the shuttle. We suggest you bring a small, collapsible handcart to transport your materials the short distance from the shuttle to the fair site. Parking permits will be issued at the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122).

Due to the limited number of parking spaces on campus and permit allowances, each Premier (and Non-Profit) Registrations are allowed to bring only 1 car (Diamond Registrations can bring up to 5 cars). Shuttles will transport recruiters between the parking area and fair site. If you do not park in the designated fair parking area, the Career Center will not be responsible for tickets issued by the campus parking control.
