Parking tips for Commencement Day 2008

 Visitors attending commencement at Trevecca will drive more than 3,000 cars onto the campus that day—onto a campus that has 1,200 regular parking spaces. If you plan to be in that group, here are some tips to make your visit to campus more enjoyable.

1. Come early. The ceremony starts promptly at 9 A.M. Persons who come early have better parking options.

2. Handicapped parking areas are filled by 8:30 A.M. Anyone who needs handicapped parking must plan to arrive before 8:30 A.M.

3. Interior campus parking areas fill by 8:30 A.M. Persons who arrive after that time will be directed to satellite parking areas.

4. Come prepared to walk to the interior campus from parking lots. (Wear shoes that will be comfortable.) Shuttle service will be available for persons who cannot walk, but others will need to walk the two blocks from the satellite areas to the inner campus.

5. Three entrances to the campus will be open:

  • Main campus entrance at 333 Murfreesboro Road (Most people enter the campus this way. It has much traffic.)
  • Service entrance, on Murfreesboro Road west of the main campus entrance (between the Boone Business Building and Trevecca Community Church of the Nazarene)
  • Nance Lane at Murfreesboro Road, east of the main campus entrance—Proceed up Nance Lane; personnel will direct you to the satellite parking areas.
