SUS Conference Roommate Request


My name is Judy, and I am a PhD Candidate at U of Waterloo, attending the SUS Conference this year in Pittsburgh, PA. I am writing to inquire whether anyone is still looking to share a room at the Omni Hotel, to cut down on cost. I will only be arriving in Pittsburgh very late on Thursday evening, so I will need the room for the nights of November 5th, 6th, and 7th.


If there is anyone interested, please e-mail me at judy.m.e@gmail.com, or write me a Facebook message (search Judy Ehrentraut). 


Thanks so much!
