The banquet will be on Saturday night, and it costs $25 unless you stay in a dorm room (when it drops to $15).
Lebanon Valley College’s scenic campus has dorm rooms available for NEEPS attendees. The cost per person to share a double room, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the campus cafeteria, is $65.10 a day. If you’d prefer a single room, the cost for the room plus meals is $81.60 per day.
There are hotels 3 miles away from campus and further, starting at $55/night (no meals included). You may find them here.
To reserve your dorm room, include the details on your registration form, and payment with your registration fee.
By auto – Annville is easily accessible by automobile. It is 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, 3 hours from NYC and DC, and 3.5 hours from Pittsburgh. Those using GPS systems can look for 101 N. College Avenue, Annville, PA, 17003. There is plenty of on-street parking, which is at worst only a couple of blocks from campus. There’s also parking lots, and we will endeavor to get parking passes for participants.
Airport 1 – You can fly into MDT (Harrisburg). Distance is about 30 minutes. It’s the closest and typically the most expensive. It does have the advantage of being very easy to fly out of (no TSA hassles or delays).
Airport 2 – PHL often offers the most direct flights. It is about 90 minutes away. It can be a hassle, in terms of TSA, and you have to plan on traffic on 76 getting into the city/airport.
Airport 3 – BWI (120 minutes away) has some direct flights. It is easier than PHL in terms of traffic and the TSA. The biggest variable in terms of travel is the traffic on the 695 beltway, but it’s not as bad as PHL in that regard.
By train – Amtrak service is available, either to Elizabethtown station (25 minutes away) or Harrisburg (30 minutes). You would need to sort out someone to pick you up, as there is no bus or rail connection to the college.
The cafeteria on Lebanon Valley Campus will be open. A list of nearby restaurants can be found here [http://www.lvc.edu/parents/eat.aspx] – please note that only those in Annville are in walking distance.
Please check back for details about entertainment, and possibly planned NEEPS events.
See you in May!
