If you are flying, plan to fly into the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL). Lindenwood University is approximately 10 miles west of St. Louis, and FEE will provide a shuttle from the airport to campus (and back). We will email you details about the shuttle as the seminar gets closer.

You will be staying in traditional dorm rooms with a roommate of your same gender and will share a community bathroom with other students on your hall, also of your same gender.  Linens are NOT provided, so you will need to bring your own bedding (sheets sized Twin XL or a sleeping bag), a pillow, and a towel.
