2014 String Camp Registration Form


Monday, July 21, Snow Fine Arts Center Lobby, 7:15am - 8:15am

 Because of work on Bruce street in front of the stadium, you may enter the campus from Bruce Street at the large gate into the campus just west of Western Ave. and across from the Methodist Student Union.  If you cross the lighted crosswalk at the Prince Center and Lewis Science Center, you've gone too far.  After turning into the campus, turn at first right then make a left as the road turns to the left (Bear Hall will be on your right just before you make the left hand turn).  SFAC is on your left at the next stop sign.  You may also enter the campus at the large parking lot just west of Estes Stadium on Bruce street, but you must come from the roundabout at Farris Road to access that entrance.

A third entrance to the campus is from Farris Road thru parking lot just across from Subway.  After entering parking lot go straight until you come to a cross street.  Turn right.  Then left at next stop sign (police station on your left).  At next stop sign go straight and then circle back around in front of SFAC for drop off and pick up.

CONCERT is Saturday, July 26, beginning at 10:30am.
