Map Your Experience at NCCWSL!
The National Conference for College Women Student Leaders takes place on the beautiful, sprawling campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, just a few miles north of Washington, D.C. You’ll want to make the most of your time during NCCWSL, so here are a few tips to help you find your way around.
Once You’re Here
After arriving on campus, the first building you’ll need to visit is LaPlata Hall, the place you’ll go to register. LaPlata is also where we’ll have our NCCWSL Wednesday night welcome reception. You’ll also come to either LaPlata or its neighbor dorm, Denton Hall, to rest and recuperate after each full day of NCCWSL activities.
The Adele H. Stamp Student Union, affectionately known as “the Stamp” to UMD students, is the building where the majority of activities occur during the conference. Other buildings to know are the 251 North (Denton Community Dining Hall, where you’ll get your meals, and the Riggs Alumni Center and St. Mary’s Hall, where some of our workshops will be held.
During Your Stay
You’ll keep busy with all the activities offered during NCCWSL. But don’t miss your chance to explore new places, too! Between workshops, take a nice walk by the McKeldin Mall, which is one of the longest collegiate malls in the United States. In the evening, take some time to check out the shops and restaurants on Route 1. And don’t forget to snap a selfie with Testudo!
Before You Leave
After spending the conference redefining leadership with students from all over the country, we know you’ll be excited to get home and get started on your leadership path! But before you do, take some time to reflect on your experience at the UMD Garden of Reflection and Remembrance (near McKeldin Mall). Share your reflections and the lessons you learned during the conference with other attendees during the Learn. Lead. Network. Act. closing session on Saturday.
