Finding us on campus
We are on the 5th floor of Sears building. Depending on which directions you followed, you are either in the parking garage, coming from the RTA station, or have just been dropped off by your cab at Rainbow Babies Children's Hospital. Here is a map showing directions to our building from all three points. In true idiosyncratic fashion, the ground floor is the 3rd floor, so walk up two flights of stairs (much faster than the elevator, trust me) to find us on the 5th floor.
