Highly visible orange tents or a 25 foot flag mark the gathering place for event attendees, making it clear where to go once guests arrive to campus using their designated entrance and parking lot assignments. Once parked, trained Transportation Services staffers help guests board Comet Cabs for transport to the event location.
