Rutgers-Camden will be hosting a training workshop for History Day judges on Tuesday, February 7, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Coffee and cookies will be served. Additional information about the workshop may be found below.
The workshop will be held in the Executive Meeting Room of the Campus Center at Rutgers-Camden. The Campus Center’s location may be viewed here: http://www.camden.rutgers.edu/pdf/CampusMap.pdf. The Campus Center opens onto the main campus quad. It should be entered through the main entrance to the building on the quad. Once inside, visitors should walk down the stairs in the main lobby to the lower level. At the bottom of the stairs, you will see a hallway ahead of you. Walk to the hallway, turn right down the hallway, and the Executive Meeting Room will be on your left.
There are elevators in the building as well. If visitors need assistance, they can ask at the booth (our “Impact Booth”) in the Campus Center lobby.
Free parking will be available for judges attending the workshop. Judges should park at the Camden County Parking Deck, located at 601 Cooper Street. The vehicle entrance to the garage is actually in the rear, off Penn Street. The garage is unhelpfully surrounded by several one-way streets. To enter the garage, you’ll want to be heading west on Cooper Street (i.e., towards Philadelphia), then make a right onto N 6th St, make another right onto Penn St, and then make a quick right into the garage. As you enter, take a ticket, and bring the ticket with you. You can park anywhere in the garage. When you leave for the day, you should stop in the garage lobby–entered off of Cooper Street, rather than Penn Street–and tell the people at the desk that you were attending a Rutgers event. They will validate your ticket so that you can depart the garage without paying.
Please do NOT park in any of the Rutgers lots you see–those require permits, and you will be ticketed.
For judges taking PATCO, our campus is located close to the City Hall stop. The Campus Center is about a four-block walk from the stop
