The Young Authors Program will begin at 9:10 a.m. in the Covenant Fine Arts Center Auditorium located on the west side of the East Beltline. Doors will open at 8:40 a.m. Students will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. from the same location.
We ask that buses park on the east side of the East Beltine in the parking lots by the DeVos/Prince Conference Center buildings (lots 14 and 15). From those parking lots, teachers and chaperones may lead their students to the pedestrian bridge to cross over the East Beltline to the Covenant Fine Arts Center. There will be signs posted to guide you.
At 12:30 p.m. attendees will be dismissed from the Covenant Fine Arts Center Auditorium. Schools that arrived on a bus will exit using the south doors of the Fine Arts Center (the same doors they used when they arrived). Teachers, chaperones, and students may proceed across the pedestrian bridge to the other side of the East Beltline. If your bus will be staying for the duration of the morning, it will be in the same spot where you left it. We understand that not all buses stay on campus for the duration of the workshop. Buses picking up students only at the conclusion of the workshop should proceed directly to the DeVos/Prince Conference Center parking lots when arriving on campus and should wait there for the students.
*Our campus safety department has had serious concerns in the past about keeping our campus roads clear for traffic during the event, and we appreciate your assistance in this matter.
