Accommodations
Our group will be staying at the Comfort Inn & Suites.
Since we have ten students total, you will be sharing a room with either one or two other persons each with their own bed. So far we have all three male students sharing a suite. We will have three ladies in another suite, and the other four in two rooms. If you have any preferences for roommate(s) please let us know right away.

Travel
The group will travel up to Morehead together, the honors college will be renting a van to facilitate this. If you would like to drive your own car, please go ahead and make these arrangements letting us know that you intend to do so. Departure time from campus is set at 11.30m from the Honors College. Please plan on arriving to the Honors College at least 20 minutes before then so that the van can be loaded with luggage and driven off campus by the stated time. If you would like to leave your overnight bag here at the office in the morning before heading off to class, please feel free to do so.

Necessary documents
In order to make the trip, each student will need to fill out the attached liability form and return it to the Honors College by Monday, February 17.
