I was a professor here for many years but wasn't logging benchmarks back then. It was fun to walk across that familiar campus.

I saw this for the first time when we did a campus tour for our daughter. She did not end up attending here but it is a wonderful school. Thanks for the benchmark.

Found while on vacation and looking for a cache.

Saw while driving through the area.

This can be see from quite a distance. I thought it was a churh spire from a distance, but as we got closer I recognized the start on top. Even closer, realized it was part of the University. Building appears stable and well cared for. Too much traffic and nowhere to park the motorhome to get out for a picture. It looks like the other pictures submitted.

Spotted while in town on a quick caching run.

Spotted this while caching in the area.

Out catching up on some missed caches since our last trip as the Puzzlemaniacs (PMS), Marshwin was great at having us look for all these benchmarks. Thanks!
