Parking for the Green Business Forum:
The easiest place to find parking is in the DiGregorio parking lot, which is next to the athletic fields (turn right at the first stop sign on University Drive). From there, follow the signs for the forum. They guide you up the hill to the main campus towards the Campus Center, which is the prominent building with the big glass windows facing the lake. The entrance to Pierce Hall is in the back of the campus center.
