Transportation:

 The hotel is about 5 miles from UW-Fond du Lac. It has a shuttle van that holds 6 passengers. When you make your reservation, please let them know if you need to use the shuttle.

 If you are able to bring a car to drive yourself (and classmates if you’re willing) to class, this would help with transportation. There are 24 students in the class. If the hotel has to shuttle all of you it will have to start quite early. You are also welcome to bike if you think time allows.

 Please contact the Continuing Ed Dept (920-929-1155 or kayla.ottmar@uwc.edu ) with your transportation plan so we can gauge the needs of the group.
