Attendees who are taking the Coach Shortline Bus to campus should await their housing assignment for the weekend before determining at which stop they should get off. Guests staying with a Freshman should get off at the North Campus stop. Those staying at the CJL should get off at the Baker Flagpole (West Campus) stop. Each bus stops at both stops. For more information, please contact the CJL.
