Dinoprophet: After a run of over three years, I had to archive Higher Education today. The container is gone, and I no longer have the perfectly-matched paint. I feel bad because it's always had such great feedback. Thanks to all the finders who stuck to it and figured it out. For those who didn't find it, here's the spoiler--

Although it's possible to be on the ground at the given coordinates, it is also possible to be eight floors up. The eighth floor of the building is partly indoors, but most of it is an open area. The view is quite amazing from here -- on a moderately clear day, the Ren Cen and the Detroit skyline is visible, over 30 miles away!

Now that you know, read the description and clues -- even the title -- again. It's all so clear now, eh?

Maybe this is Cache Karma, paying me back for breaking B&G. If you have any pictures, please post them -- I'd love to see them!

Geocache Description:

This micro brings you to my favorite location on the campus of Oakland University.

The container is a square tin about the size of a compact disc case. Only small items will fit. Please make sure the lid is on tight if you leave anything.

If the buildings in the area interfere with your signal, try getting closer to the satellites.

I have labelled this cache "Handicapped Accessible" because a wheelchair should be able to easily navigate the entire course. However, the container is about seven feet up, so some people may be unable to reach it.
