DESCRIPTION / DIRECTIONS: Piskor Hall was formerly a Canton College building. It is the large red-sandstone and brick building, directly across from the book store, facing Park Street. From lot J, walk up the hill to Park St. and then walk along Park St. - past the science building (Valentine, Bewkes, Johnson) and admissions office (Payson) to reach Piskor Hall (philosophy, sociology, anthropology and history offices and classrooms). Head up one flight of stairs to the corner room closest to the bookstore across the street). To lessen the uphill walk, park in lot D, work your way to the bookstore, cross the street and enter Piskor at the nearby entry at the end of the building. Go up one flight of stairs. Entrance to room 117 faces the staircase door (windows face the book bookstore).
PARKING: Park in the J lot or D lot. From downtown Canton: turn onto Park Street at the light (between the between the post office and the park) and drive past the SLU campus to the far side of the campus buildings. To J lot: Turn left into the large parking lot just beyond the the science buildings on the left (and the sports complex on the right). Do NOT park in "FACULTY" or "GUEST" parking spots - these are ONLY for SLU issued parking passes. Park in one of the open spots ("faculty" and "guests" get the closest spots!). (Remember to hang you SOAR issued permit!) From J Lot, walk up the pathway to Park Street. If you park in D lot (no permit needed). From Park Street, turn right (along the back side of the sports complex) into parking lot D (NOTE 1: the small lot directly on Park St. is NOT part of D lot; do not park there!) NOTE 2: you can park anywhere in D lot without a permit. The best place to park (for a more level walk) is at the far end by the tennis courts. Walk by the stadium and over to the book store to cross the street and find the closest end entrance (on the right) to Piskor and room 117 upstairs. NOTE 3: only use the crosswalks to get across Park St. to your SOAR classes. NOTE 4: Reminder the parking lot at the bookstore is for patrons, not parking spots for SOAR classes!
