TRANSPORTATION: Parking on campus is free on the weekends. If you're coming from downtown Portland, you can take the Pioneer Express shuttle bus:


(Note that the shuttle route has changed slightly from last year.)

FOOD: Bon Appetit has a monopoly contract for all catering on campus,
so it's a very bad deal for us to order coffee. Instead, we've
discovered that there is a coffee shop (Maggie's) open on campus. The
Fields Dining Room is also open for a buffet lunch. Info on both can
be found here:


Note that Maggie's doesn't open until 10:00 AM on the weekend, so if
you need an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring
something along.
