Driving Directions

  1. Take Exit 26 off of Interstate 65.  Turn toward Bowling Green onto Cemetery Road.

  3. Stay on College Street through downtown Bowling Green and continue until you reach the top of the hill. College Street will dead-end at 15th street at a statue of Henry Hardin Cherry. Turn right onto 15th Street.
  4. If you don’t need to drop off materials, at the second stop sign, turn right.  Drive to the stop light and turn left on to University Blvd.  Please drive 1/10 of a mile and turn left into Parking Structure 2 (PS2).  Park on the first floor. Give your name to the parking attendant for admission into the garage.
  5. If you NEED to drop off materials, at the third stop sign drive straight and immediately bear left towards the pull-off on your left.  (Look for the balloons to help you find where to stop.)  You can drop off materials and a staff member will take them to the registration table.  We will give you driving directions to the parking structure.
  6. After you have parked your car, exit the parking lot on the opposite side you entered. You will be facing the Downing Student Union.  Walk straight ahead, passing the flag poles, towards the Downing Student Union.  Enter the building.  The Job Fair is being held on the third floor.  Look for balloons and signs to help guide you.  If you do get lost, just ask a student for help.
