2014 URC Arrival, Check-in, Tours, and Schedule
We are all looking forward to seeing you at the 26th annual
Butler University Undergraduate Research Conference on April 11,
2014. Here is some information to make your arrival and check-in
All students should review the online
schedule to check their individual presentation times. A
bug in the system resulted in some changes, especially in the
Psychology and Pharmacy/Exercise Science areas. Everyone,
regardless of area, should check the online version to be sure of
her/his individual schedule. Keep in mind that these are 15-minute
presentation slots for oral presentations.

We will have security outside guiding you to the appropriate
locations. There is ample parking available. Parking will first be
available in the Irwin Library lot (marked beside #1 on the
attached map). When that lots fills up, you will be directed to the
lot by Lilly and Clowes Halls (#4 on your map). Overflow parking
will finally be directed to Hinkle Fieldhouse (marked with the
parking symbol by 49th street on the map).
Conference check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. in Irwin Library (#1 on
your map). Pre-paid guests and registered Butler students, faculty,
and staff will have received a registration QR code via e-mail
during the week of April 7th. If you have that code (either printed
or on an electronic device), you will be quickly scanned in upon
arrival at Irwin. If you have forgotten to bring the QR code with
you, we can still check you in quickly. Guests who still need to
pay will be directed to the reference desks, where our volunteers
will be happy to assist you. Registered guests who selected a
t-shirt option can pick up their shirts during the check-in
process. You will also receive a name tag. Light breakfast (while
supplies last-arrive early), poster session #1, and the art
exhibition will all be available in the library that morning.
