Didn't quite get the dome in the shot, but close enough.

I've been bear this benchmark numerous times, usually driving by the campus on my way somewhere. In March of 2014 I was on campus to present a paper at a conference as well. This is a pretty campus, and most people don't realize that this is a state - funded university, not a private one. Today I was just in the neighborhood running errands and decided to the a quick detour to snap a picture of this before I forgot again.

These old domes, water towers and other prominent objects from long ago are interesting benchmarks. This one can be seen from various angles around the newer and taller buildings on this university site.

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

Saw this "dome" while on campus geocaching (found cache number 100) here.

Big, shiny benchmark dome. Can't miss it.

I found this with Schway and Cachesafari.

Logged this one while hunting caches on campus. Construction going on with this building currently. Very nice college.

I attend TWU and have gone by this several times not realizing its a benchmark. And as everyone says... it's a dome all right...

Still a dome, a nice one, but a dome it is.

Found this benchmark while out hunting with my son. Still at location in good condition.

Cool!

I work there. easy find.

Found Benchmark and is in good condition.
