Travel

Flying into St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) is the easiest way to get to the conference. The airport is about a 15-minute drive from campus. While direct flights to STL used to be abundant, they are scarcer in the aftermath of the pandemic. If you plan on attending the conference, you should probably try to book your ticket as early as possible. Also, be sure to check routes from Southwest (in addition to the legacy carriers) as they are the only carrier offering non-stop flights from certain destination.
