Living-Learning CenterSome attendees are staying in the modern “Living Learning Center” dormitories, two buildings separated by a grassy courtyard. Each floor has space for informal socializing, with large windows and comfortable chairs. Most dorm rooms are Doubles, with the bath down the hall, but attendees can have a room to themselves if they prefer.
