I was out walking on a warm day and happened upon the Memorial Union and bookstore. Good place to fill your water bottle and and relax for awhile. This is a gorgeous campus. Lots of student tours going on.

Was in town for business, and the hotel was on campus- and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like it! Gorgeous, clean campus with lots to do. I hate to say it, but it's nicer than the Big 10 campus in my town!
