Parking and Transportation
Please plan to arrive early for all Parents’ Weekend events, especially the parade. Traffic, parking and security checks may result in

parking lots (see map in this handout). Vehicles MUST be parked in designated parking spaces only—violators may be ticketed or
towed at owner’s expense. There is no guest or cadet parking permitted in the Harmon Hall parking lot on Friday. Private vehicles
may not enter the Cadet Area during Parents’ Weekend.

Area. Guests are also welcome to walk from the parking areas. Buses will stop at designated bus stops (identified by signs and

Throughout your visit, please be prepared with good walking shoes and bottles of water, since bus wait times may sometimes be

walking required from bus stops to your final destination. Please make sure to consider this when bringing elderly or infirm guests to
