Campus Access

Parents are welcome to walk dancers into the St. John lobby at the start of class but should plan to exit the building when class begins. Free Wi-Fi is available in the Woods Parking Lot if a parent chooses to wait in their car or on an outdoor bench during class time (WiFi name: Public McDonogh).
