The South Ballroom south entrance is located at the end of a side hallway – just past the interior stairway located in the center of the south hallway. You will turn right to enter the south entrance hallway. Students will direct you due to construction re-routing.
Two coat racks are located along the north wall of the North Ballroom – to the left of the stage.
The registration table will be located outside of the South Ballroom south entrance. Name badges will be provided for registered representatives. Our badges will allow us to determine which participants are allowed in the food and drink area. You are welcome to use this badge and your company badge.
A 6-foot table with black table covering will be furnished. Table tents with company names and table numbers will be placed on the tables. Chairs will be provided for all company representatives who registered for the career fair.
