Our Event will be held at Constitution Hall on East Campus, which also includes the Don Myers Technology & Innovation Building, a state-of-the-art facility for scientific research, collaboration, and learning.

Built with sustainability in mind, East Campus aims for LEED Certification with efforts taken to limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted, produce less waste, and increase energy efficiency.
