SFI Camp Information

WKU'S 2015 Summer Forensics Institute
July 5-11 or 5-16


Registration Closed

Camp registration has now closed. If you're registration is complete and you've submitted a medical release form, you'll simply come to Bemis-Lawrence Hall on the campus of Western Kentucky University. You can simply type into your navigation software the address "1906 College Heights Blvd" in Bowling Green, Kentucky and you'll find the campus. Note that Exit 26 is preferred for simplicity. This map [link] can help you approach campus from Interstate 65; we're at the Main Campus. If you enter via Exit 26, you'll reach campus at a three-way intersection atop a hill facing a statue and Cherry Hall. IGNORE the second map on the above link, as that would take you down the wrong side of campus. Instead take a LEFT at the statue (that's 15th Avenue) down to another three-way at the planetarium. You'll take a RIGHT there, onto Normal Street. Follow Normal Street down until you pass the large Mass Media and Technology Hall on the right. There's a pedestrian crossing there, but you'll want to park in the lot on the left. Bemis-Lawrence Hall (our dorm) is a little further down on the right of Normal Drive. The campus map [link] allows you to find Bemis-Lawrence Hall at building #32 near the bottom.

After you've dropped off our camper(s) you can return to Normal Drive and follow it down to University Blvd. Taking a left onto University Blvd will get you to Highway 31W, but note that there's a round-about at the 31W intersection. If you want to go left, back towards the way you came in, you'll have to follow the round-about around.

If you have any questions about registration (such as payment) please contact the WKU Distance Education office at 270-745-1912.
