Imagine the look on my face when I realized that I was here a week ago to locate and log the benchmark that was, oh, right next to this one without realizing that this one was here. However, in the interim, I nabbed a trackable whose mission is to travel from cache to cache, visiting benchmarks in between! So it gave me a nice reason to come back and officially find this one.

I used to hang out at this campus, come and visit friends. I went to another college nearby. Back then I had no idea about geocaching... Wish I did!
Glad to return to the area, brought back lots of memories.

There's construction going on here, but they are taking care of the benchmark. I found it with Rice81 and CacheSafari.

I found this with Schway and Cachesafari.

This benchmark is currently in a construction area. It's been gouged out in a chunk of concrete, but still available at the moment.
