Things to Do
This year’s conference promises to be as exciting and learning filled as those in the past. We are blessed to have returned researchers and presenters as well as new colleagues and students. Be prepared to learn new research, hone your skills, and broaden your network of peers.
Beautiful downtown Huntington is home of Marshall University whose campus is about a mile from the Doubletree. The student center is full of energy and a Starbucks, the football stadium is accessible for sports fans, and the new engineering department is worth the visit. We chose the Doubletree by Hilton because of Location, Location, Location. In addition to being a beautiful venue, it is within walking distance of Harris River Front Park, which offers a cool river breeze and a quiet atmosphere.
