Reminder: Symposium Parking and Dining

Presidents Day Parking and Dining Update

On Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 17, W&J will host two major events on campus: The Third Annual Symposium on Democracy and the Admission Office’s Presidents Day Open House.

  • Parking arrangements for current W&J students will not change.

  • The Burnett Center Lot: Reserved for Symposium speakers and lecturers.
  • The Visitors Lot on Chestnut Street (the former O’Reilly Auto Parts store): Available for community guests.
  • The lower lot of the Church of the Covenant will be available for community guests. Please park only in the lower lot; the upper lot will be in use by the church.

All Parking meters are free on President’s Day and those on the perimeter of campus can be used by Symposium guests and campus visitors.
