I have just found out I have been accepted into Rutgers one on one conference and I am both delighted and very nervous. The nerves are because I live in California and have to get myself over to the other side of the country on my own! So I'm looking for some travel advice from anyone that has been before - best airport to go to? Transport from airport to conference? Best hotel to stay in? Also will any other blueboarders be there?!
Thanks
Sian

If you haven't already done so, you might want to join the  RUCCL2019 INFO facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/586018428549967/ The closest airport is Newark Liberty. Oh, and congratulations on getting in.

I also got in. I'm in NY so I'm driving and can't offer advice on travel except to say Newark is a major airport so flights shouldn't be an issue. The website for Rutgers does have some info on hotels as I recall. Say hi if you see me and remind me you're a Blueboarder. I look just like my picture.
