Upon registering, each student, advisor, and chaperone will receive their AEE Day materials, an AEE t-shirt, and a baseball game ticket. Please check your materials when you register to make certain you have the correct items.

If you have students who cannot attend and you would like the AEE staff to find a home for your baseball tickets, please let the staff know at the event check in or prior to the event.

Parking for AEE Day

If you are bringing an activity bus, there will be parking available in the Varsity lot off of Western Boulevard next to the Joyner visitors center. There is a gravel lot there for busses. It is a bit of walk to the Brickyard from this lot so it is recommended that you drop the students off first. Cars and small vans can be parked in any of the parking structures on campus. All parking is free on Saturdays.

If you have any questions please contact David Jones, dwjones@ncsu.edu
