Look for our new signs to guide you into our parking lot from either the main campus entrance or the D Street entrance. They're also posted along Dennis Hall to guide you around the building to the main entrance to the museum. Or, you can follow the footprints left on the sidewalk by a mastodon also bound for the museum.
