Driving from the South

Take I-65 North. You can exit at U.S. 30 East in Merrillville, but it is faster to get off I-65 at Exit 240
(marked Lowell).  Turn right off of exit 240 onto Highway 2.  After about 5 miles, turn left at the T
intersection and follow Highway 2 through Hebron and then into Valparaiso.  When you reach the
intersection of Highway 2 and U.S. 30 in Valparaiso, turn right.  You will pass by the Valparaiso
University campus on your left.  Turn left at first stoplight onto Sturdy Road.  Proceed north to the
roundabout and head right off the roundabout.  The Country Inn and Suites hotel is on your right
immediately after the roundabout, right next to the Dairy Queen.

When you walk out the front door of the hotel, Valparaiso University is just to your left (west) across
Sturdy Road.  The roundabout is busy, so please be careful crossing the street.  To get to the Harre Union,
where the conference is located: once you are on the University side of Sturdy Road, follow the sidewalk
to the left (south) that leads up to the main University entrance on Sturdy Road.  Turn right into the
campus.  The Harre Union will be the fourth building on your right.  (You will walk past Urshel Hall,
Schnabel Hall, and the Center for the Arts).  The Harre Union is located right across from the Chapel. 
The conference is taking place on the second floor of the Union.  If you want to drive to the Harre Union,
you can park in Lot 13 or 14.  For a campus map, see http://www.valpo.edu/about/maps-directions/.
