College vans will meet all the USAir flights coming into Johnstown if we were previously told of your flight plans.
The university's phone number is 1-800-875-5958. Those who want to leave a message for you should be given this number. If you have a reservation and find at the last minute you must cancel, either leave a message or me to that effect at the number shown here or send an e-mail to eKenzli@cfl.rr.com.
If you made no reservation but find you can come even at the last minute, please do so. In past years we have been able to accommodate those who wish to stay on campus and believe we will be able to do so again this year.
