Kay Spiritual Life Center at American University
Metro: Tenleytown, take free AU Shuttle to the location

More Specific Directions: The event is in Kay Spiritual Life Center, which is directly across the main quad from the Library. It's a large circular building with a giant fake flame on top--very easy to spot. We'll start the event upstairs.

Metro: Take the Red line to Tenleytown/AU and at the third escalator, the first space where you have a choice of two, take the escalator to your left. This will put you out with Whole Foods on your left. Keep walking straight to the curb and the AU Shuttle Bus picks up right there. Tell students or the driver that you'd like to get off at the North side stop. Walk straight onto the quad and Kay is to your right.

Campus map: (Kay is the small circle to the lower left of the main entrance. The bus will drop you off to the left of Ward building.)

By car: you'd drive to Massachusetts and Nebraska (Ward Circle), and park in the lot on the north side of the circle, on Massachusetts, under Katzen (the giant arts center building). Parking is free after 5.30 on campus. From there you'd walk across the street onto AU's campus, and to your left you'll see Kay's flaming top.
