You're on your own for breakfast, but we'll probably have some coffee brewing, starting at 8am.


Lunch is on your own; Directly across Campus Dr. (a 5 minute walk) over Watson Bridge is the University Center shopping center with a variety of sit-down and fast food restaurants.

Directions: exit the conference center at the doors near the parking structure and head right along Pereira Dr until you reach the rose garden (about 500 ft). Then go left and take Watson bridge over Campus Dr. to the University Center.
