John Gilger's note about the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is on the

would be Vanderbilt University, located near downtown Nashville (another big
spot for conferences, actually). Many universities near an urban area often

office: As you'll note under
accomodations, there are many different housing arrangments available, some
