From BWI (Baltimore Washington International, Thurgood Marshall Airport)

From BWI, follow the airport exit signs that put you on the highway connector Route #195 out of the airport vicinity, and take exit onto North 95. You will want to move to the left most lane as soon as possible, for the next exit (to 695 outer beltway) is a left lane exit. Follow 695 north or clockwise around Baltimore until you see 795 northwest extension signs. Take 795, a right hand exit -- which takes you only a few miles to the north and west. When 795 ends, exit right #140, toward Westminster, and take that route 140 (multiple lanes) through an extended strip of franchise and big box retail stores. You will see a sign for Gettysburg at an exit marked 97, and take that northward, all the way into the middle of the borough. You'll see the way route 97 comes into the maps above (MapQuest Map), observe speed limits carefully on 97. The seminary is west of the town's center; take 97 to the circle in the town, and go 3/4 of the way around the circle and exit w. Follow Chambersburg Street west for two blocks; at the third light, go straight ahead onto Springs Avenue where the seminary campus begins in three more blocks.
