From the South (Cincinnati area):
Take your best route to SR27 North
Watch the signs carefully and stay on SR27 all the way into Oxford.
Once you get to the Oxford campus, you will go through one stop light as you come up the hill.
Then you will turn right onto Western Dr.
Follow Western Dr. around the curve and turn right between Havighurst and Clawson Halls
(it'll be the first right you can take after Havighurst)
Alexander Dining Hall is on the back side of Clawson.
