Upon entering the lobby of the BPAC, turn left and proceed past the restrooms and water fountain. Turn left at the hallway, then right at the practice rooms. Room 145 is located at the end of the practice room hallway (view of practice rooms) just to the right down a few steps. If you are auditioning for a music scholarship, students will greet you in the BPAC lobby and help you get oriented.
