11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
University of Wisconsin La Crosse — Student Union

Please note: Parking can be challenging around the university. We expect that it may be even more challenging this year because of paid parking implementation on the street surrounding campus. The new paid street parking is through the Passport Parking app, zone 1297. We will be providing shuttle transportation from downtown (La Crosse Center Box Office area) and Forest Hills (600 Losey Blvd.), which will begin at 10 a.m. (approx.15 minute route). The last shuttles will leave the pick-up points at 11. The program will begin promptly at 11:20. Thank you for carpooling and/or planning ahead. If you have limited mobility and are unable to make other arrangements, let us know by calling 608-780-5710.
