Holy Cross
Directions to Holy Cross:

The workshop will be in the Faculty Room on the second floor of the
Dinand Library, the main library on campus. As in the directions above,
enter the campus through Gate 7 and park in the Hogan Campus Center
parking lot. From there, proceed down the staircase to the right of the
Hogan Center. At the bottom of the stairs, cross the street and head
left to the library, a large brick building. See the campus map

If you would like to come a bit early, you can enjoy lunch at the
Crossroads, the pub in the basement of the Hogan Center. If you indicate
on your registration that you will be coming for lunch, we may be able
to have a table or two held. The Crossroads has rather fine luncheon
fare, with a variety of hot meals, sandwiches, grilled items, sushi,
soup and salads. After lunch, exit downhill to the convenient side
entrance of the Library.
