Plan Your Day
at NC State
The first step in planning your day is determining where to start. Consult the parking map and determine the parking location near the event you would like to attend first.
Once you park, head to the welcome table closest to your parking area and pick up a program for the day. Make sure to keep your program handy – you’ll need it throughout the day to keep track of where everything is located. Your program also includes the schedule of events – you can pick and choose sessions to attend based on your interest.
