DIRECTIONS

Participants can fly to either Atlanta, Birmingham or Montgomery to come to Auburn. However, we suggest flying into ATL and either renting a vehicle or taking a shuttle. Shuttles are available only from Atlanta airport and run almost every hour. The detailed schedule can be found at Groome Transportation. Below is the information for those who wants to drive to Auburn.

FROM ATLANTA & ATLANTA HARTSFIELD JACKSON AIRPORT:

Take I-85 South towards Montgomery. Travel approximately 103 miles, and take Exit 51 (Auburn). At the end of the ramp, bear right onto College Street. Travel another 3.5 miles. The Hotel and Conference Center is located on the right side of the street, directly across from Draughon Library.

Please keep in mind Auburn University is in Central time zone and Atlanta is in Eastern Time zone so you want to factor that while purchasing airlines ticket.
