April 18: Travel Assistance
You can fly into O'Hare, Midway, or Michiana Regional (SBN) airports. SBN is by far the closest, but often costs more and/or requires additional connections. If you fly into O'Hare or Midway, you can take United Limo (aka Coach USA) to SBN http://www.coachusa.com Round trip is roughly $60, the bus generally leaves every 2 hours, and it takes about 2 hours to get to SBN from O’Hare or Midway. Keep in mind that Chicago is on Central Time and Andrews is on EST, one hour later. From SBN it's a 1/2 hour car ride to Andrews University. The conference will provide free van service from Michiana Regional to Andrews on Wednesday afternoon and on Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. If at all possible, try to arrive at Andrews by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the time of the first scheduled meeting according to the current draft.
