We know how hard it is to weigh the options and make a choice that will change your life,” sai Janell Baum, Explo- rACES co-chair of publicity. “Having the right in- formation in your hands and experiencing the people, the places and the curriculum allows you to make the decision that is right for you.” Event coordinators have worked to make getting


to the ACES campus even more accessible by pro- viding free parking and free shuttle service to and from parking lot E-14, just west of the Assembly Hall. “We built a mobile website this year, complete


with maps, parking and exhibit information,” Baum said. “We are so excited to offer this to our visitors and want to make sure their experience at ExplorACES is flawless.”
