  • Program
  • Registration
    Although registration is also possible on site the day of the event, it helps us with planning purposes if you register ahead of time. Registration is free, although members of the chapter will be asked to update their dues payments.
  • Travel information
    Curtis is located at 1616 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. We are meeting in Lenfest Hall, their new building across the street from St. Mark’s Church. Parking is extremely tight in this neighborhood, but early on a Saturday morning street parking can usually be found in the vicinity. Otherwise, public transportation is highly recommended. Travelers from New Jersey might wish to take PATCO to the 16th and Locust Stop. SEPTA’s Regional Rail offers service to Suburban Station, a mere 1/2 mile walk to Curtis. SEPTA’s Market Street subway stops at 15th Street, and Broad Street subway stops at Walnut-Locust, both just a few blocks away.

There is a major recruiting event on campus that day so parking may be limited. Attendees can park along the street or in any of the lots except for Front Drive (the horseshoe on the north side of Chew St that begins in front of Egner Chapel). If street parking is unavailable, I would recommend the lots on the south side of Chew St (if you’re heading east on Chew St, the entrance is just past the Center for the Arts and Trexler Library).
