>By Car:
> The University of Maryland sits right in the corner of the
>intersection of 193 (University Blvd.) and Adelphi Rd.
> From either direction on 495, take the College Park exit
>(Rt. 1 south) and head south on Rt. 1 through several traffic lights.
>After a few miles, you will see signs for 193 west, which will be a
>right exit down a ramp. Take this exit, continue west through one
>traffic light. The next traffic light will be Campus Drive, on which
>you will turn left and enter the campus. Stay to your right, going
>through the traffic circle and keeping to your right. You will go
>between the construction for the Maryland Center for the Performing
>Arts on your right, and a huge parking garage (behind which is the
>stadium) on your left. Soon, you'll reach a second traffic circle,
>through which you pass, still staying to the right and going straight.
>A soccer field will be on your right, and the next stop sign you get
>to, turn left.
> The large parking lot that is now to your right is Lot 1,
>and Tawes Theatre looks west across it. Park in Lot 1 (it's open to
>visitors without a permit after 4 PM on weekdays), and walk
>towards the theatre, and you should see us gathering out on a brick
>stage in a small courtyard next to the theatre entrance. The main
>building entrance is actually on the opposite side of the building,
>and the room for the performance (2102) is on the second floor.
>By Public Transportation:
> The College Park Metro is not really within walking distance of
>Tawes; there are shuttles that run from the station to campus, or
>you can take a cab. Tawes is at least a mile or two from the
>Metro station.
