    Travel Information

    We recommend flying into the Golden Triangle Regional (GTR) airport in Columbus, Mississippi. It is a small airport with four flights per day arriving at about 9 a.m., 1 p.m., 5 p.m., and 8:30 p.m. central time, depending on weather and other factors, from Atlanta. This airport is about 15 miles from Starkville, and there is a free shuttle bus that takes you directly to the conference hotel. There is also an airport in Jackson, Mississippi (about 110 miles or 1 hr 45 mins away from Starkville). It has direct flights from Dallas, Washington, DC, and Charlotte on American Airlines, Houston and Chicago on United, and Atlanta on Delta. This would require renting a car. Other “nearby” airports are Tupelo (1 hr away Contour airlines), Birmingham (2.5 hours away Southwest airlines, among others) and Memphis (2 hr 45 mins away Southwest airlines, among others).

    Hotel Information

    A block of rooms has been reserved at the Courtyard Starkville MSU at the Mill Conference Center (100 Mercantile Street) for $139/night. The last day to book is Friday, February 21, 2020.
