This was a pleasant surprise and the college was beautiful to behold on manicured grounds an gardens. We came upon this by accident and we were glad we did.

We were in the area photographing Little Free Libraries. We found one behind the English Department offices. Their Little Free Library looked like it was designed by the Engineering students.
