Transportation Tips

Airports to fly into:

Easterwood Airport  - College Station, TX

While tickets are often more expensive when flying directly into College Station, with careful shopping you can sometimes find fantastic deals. We encourage everyone to investigate this option first.

George Bush Intercontinental Airport - Houston, TX

William P. Hobby Airport - Houston, TX

Driving time to College Station is approximately 2 hours from either airport in Houston. However there is a great shuttle service that you can use. They will get you to College Station for only $30 per person PREPAID ONLINE from George Bush International and $40 per person from Hobby. For more information see their website at www.groundshuttle.com.Reservations can also be made by emailing reservations@groundshuttle.com or by phone at (855) 303-4415.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport - Austin, TX

Driving time to College Station is approximately 2 hours. In past years, Wet Lab attendees have rented cars to make this drive as there is no shuttle service available.

Dress Recommendations

The weather in April in College Station averages highs of 79 F and lows of 58 F, and it is not uncommon to experience April showers. We recommend wearing scrubs and bringing a rain jacket or umbrella, but keep in mind we can never predict the weather in Texas. The website will be updated with weather predictions as wet lab approaches, so check back!

For the labs closed toed shoes are REQUIRED. Many of the labs use fresh cadaver specimens and even the live animal labs can get dirty.

Cost

Wet lab is $75. Checks can be made out to ZEW Club.
