miles of the campus; however, several of the motels are at distances of up to 8 mile from the campus.

Since shuttle bus transportation can be provided


between the campus and the closer-in motels, an effort will be made to place attendees without cars at those motels.

Off-Campus Accommodations

The off-campus accommodations are roughly equivalent in nature and price.

Approximate rates are $32.00 for singles and

$36.00 for doubles per day. A non-refundable deposit of $35.00 is required for each reservation. The first night of each reservation will be guaranteed. Parking is available at no charge at all hotels/motels.

On-Campus Accommodations

Double (twin) occupancy rooms and single

rooms, all with community bathroom

facilities, are available with full linen service

(beds made initially only and two towels

exchanged once). Coin-operated automatic


washers and dryers are conveniently located, and a local service telephone is provided in each room. Parking is available, both on surface lots and in limited covered areas, at a fee of $2.50 for the week, payable at check-in.

There are no facilities for children in the residence halls.

The room rate--single, $55 per person if available; double (twin), $42.50 per person--is based on five nights occupancy and assumes·

check-in on June 17, and check-out noon on June 22, 1979 with no credit for shorter occupancy. A non-refundable deposit of

$35.00 is required tor each reservation and the balance of the tee is payable upon arrival.
