Old Greensprings Highway, 1920
Whether you arrive by plane, train or bus, we’ll pick you up. We’ll confirm your travel arrangements with you later in the summer. If we are picking you up from flight, bus, or train, we will stop at a grocery store to pick up some food for Saturday and Sunday.
By airplane: please plan to arrive in Medford. Most likely you will take a major airline to San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver or Salt Lake, and then connect to Medford on United, U.S. Airways, Delta, Alaskan Air, or Horizon. Make your return reservations for Thursday, December 15th. Most flights depart early in the morning, and you’ll be in good company departing Lincoln for the airport in the wee hours of that morning.
By Amtrak: please arrive on Tuesday, August 23, in Klamath Falls, connecting through Portland or Sacramento.
By Greyhound: please arrive in Medford.
If family or friends wish to drive you: you'll be heading to Lincoln, nestled between Klamath Falls and Ashland on Highway 66. Make sure to pick up groceries for Sunday breakfast and lunch.
From the north or south: take Interstate 5 to Exit 14 at Ashland. Fuel up, get food, and follow the signs east toward Klamath Falls on State Highway 66 for about 40 breathtaking minutes and you'll see us just past milepost 21.
From the east: take I-80 forever, to Winnemucca, Nevada (“Gateway to the Pacific”). Follow highway 95 and then 140 north and west to Lakeview and then to Klamath Falls. This stretch is long and desolate with very few services, especially at night. At Klamath Falls pick up Highway 66 west; Lincoln is about 40 miles down the road.
If your folks or friends drive you, we welcome them to visit Lincoln. Talk to us about accommodation options if they’d like to stay overnight. They may want to spend time in Ashland, a colorful, upscale tourist/university town, with the Shakespeare Festival as its centerpiece.
Car Reminder: We understand that for the sake of cost, some students choose to drive to the Oregon Extension, but remember that during the semester, in the spirit of “being present,” you will not have use of your vehicle.
