Charles, thank you for your feedback. While we love the remoteness of Historic Banning Mills, we have received similar comments from other alumni. We have since moved our Georgia location to The Evergreen Conference Center at Stone Mountain. The Evergreen is a Marriott Conference Resort center where food options and air conditioning are plentiful. We wrote more in depth about the new location on our blog. We hope you have the opportunity to visit this location one day!
