Hello everyone! We're looking forward to seeing you in class! A couple of things to give you a heads up on: Detroit Tigers baseball, and parking. When scheduling classes, we try our best to do it on a non Tigers game-day, but sometimes we can't avoid it.

Tigers: Monday's game is at 7pm, and Wednesday's game is at 1pm. There will be extra traffic in the area when we're arriving for class, and we're so sorry for any headaches this causes. Best suggestion: allow an extra 15-20 minutes, and avoid the area of Woodward and Adams, if possible.

Some work-arounds: Coming from the north, try Cass Ave. to Grand River as a way of looping around the congestion.From I-94E, the Grand River exit should get you past most of it as well. From I-94W, getting off at Gratiot is another alternate route.The areas south and east of Atomic Object are generally easier to get through before and after games.

Parking: There's a paid lot across from Atomic Object on Randolph, and another just up the street, and the Opera House parking garage is just around the corner.

If you are running late, no worries - the first 15 minutes of class is us getting settled in. Our wonderful TA's will help you get set up when you arrive.

See you soon!
