Shuttle Bus Details
Shuttle transportation to the career fair will begin at 12:30 pm at the Suites back gate across from Morehouse School of Medicine. As you exit the gate, turn right at the sidewalk and you will see the bus pickup location. There will be a total of three 56-passenger charter buses in operation during the duration of the fair. These buses will transport both Spelman and Morehouse students. The buses will operate roundtrip for the duration of the fair, and ideally will pick up students in 30 minute intervals at the pickup location after their initial departure.

Please keep in mind that traffic, construction, and automobile accidents could potentially impact the travel route of the buses resulting in delays. Rush hour delays will begin around 3 pm. The majority of students generally attend the fair between 3 pm and 6 pm, so anticipate additional delays due to a critical mass trying to board the buses. If you are able, it is highly recommended to attend the fair between 1 pm and 3 pm before the critical mass arrives. This will allow you more time to not only engage more employers, but spend more quality time with them.

Finally, students may also choose to utilize alternative methods of transportation to travel to the fair. Information regarding driving directions and parking is attached for those who choose this option.

Career Week Events & Company Career Chats

All week long we will be hosting events to help you get prepared for the fair.
Join employers representing a variety of industries for informal, in-person conversations on a variety of career topics such as full-time jobs, internships, professional development, resume feedback, industry knowledge, job search tips, etc. All appointments are “walk-ons” and no appointment is required.

JCPenney Suit Up Event
In-Store | September 11, 2022
3:00-6:00 pm

JCPenney at Arbor Place Mall-6650 Douglas Blvd, Douglasville, GA 30135

TRANSPORTATION WILL BE PROVIDED FROM THE AUCC

The shuttle bus will pick up at the Morehouse Leadership Center (MLC) across the street from the Spelman College entrance signage at the corner of Westview and Westend. The first departure of the shuttle will begin at 2:30 pm. Students should begin loading at 2:00 pm in order to make the trip on the first departure. Arbor Place Mall is exactly 25 minutes away barring no traffic and no construction (both are fairly typical in Atlanta). At a minimum, the bus will take approximately one hour to return to the MLC after each departure during the 3pm – 6pm period. Students are encouraged to pursue other means of transportation if this schedule is not congruent with your personal schedule and you desire the in-store experience. You may also utilize the online code option (see attached flyer for details) in order to participate.

Whichever option you choose, we hope you take advantage of the savings!
