We're in a different location this year (but still on campus!). Those of you who would prefer not to walk a long distance (or who plan to stock up on books!) will want to park in a different lot than usual. Click here for a map showing the new location and parking options. For those of you with a GPS navigational system, set it to 50 Macdonald St. in Guelph. See you there!
