SustainaPita tomorrow! Rain location announced: Campbell 135

Update! Update! Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow, so we’re moving indoors. Find Campbell hall here: http://www.arch.virginia.edu/files/resources/UVa_Arch_Map_Parking_2.pdf AND directions to Campbell 135: If you’re coming from the parking lot by Campbell Hall (on the McCormick Rd side of Campbell), walk down the stairs towards the left side of the building (behind the bike racks) to enter the building. When you enter, you’ll be facing restrooms. Take a right, then turn into the hallway immediately to the left, walk down that hallway that winds to the left to a large open room (with several cushioned chairs on carpet to the right, where you can see the 2nd floor above). Keep going straight into a hallway at the far side of the room. This hallway turns right, and room 135 will be on your right.
