For those of you who were not able to brave the thunderstorms for our July Picnic, we announced that LAMALUG will now be meeting on the Michigan State University Campus, in the Communication Arts Building.
Comm-Arts is where WKAR has it’s studios, and there is a parking ramp just behind the building, and has a bus terminal on the street side. If you plan to arrive before 6:00 PM, be aware that the ramp is directly across from the MSU Public Safety office, and visitors need to park at the meters in the ramp before 6:00 PM. After 6:00 PM the ramp is open to the public. As you enter the ramp, the Comm-Arts Building is to your left, and there are stairs and an elevator between the levels. There is a sidewalk from the corner of the ramp into the reception area for WKAR, and you will see signs directing you to our new home from there.
From East of Campus (East Lansing, Okemos, Haslett, Williamston, etc.), get to Mt. Hope road from either Okemos Road or Hagadorn, and take Mt. Hope West to Farm Lane. Turn Right (North) on Farm Lane and go under the two new railroad bridges. Do not turn at the first traffic light between the bridges (Service Road). At the second light, turn left at Trowbridge, and follow it around the bends to the parking ramp.
From West of Campus (anywhere west of US-127), take Harrison to Trowbridge, and turn onto campus (or get off US-127 at the Trowbridge Exit and continue Straight). Follow Trowbridge on campus until you reach the parking ramp.
There will be signs posted on the side of the roads leading on campus to guide you to the right Parking Ramp, and there will be signs in the building once you get to Communication Arts.
The Ramp is called “Ramp 5” in this map (http://bit.ly/LAMALUG-Meetings)
