    Basic Science & Biomedical Engineering Facility

    by shrimp56 Written Sep 9, 2003

    Favorite thing: A long unwieldy name for a striking modern building. It's next to Coffman Student Union right of Washington.

    A campus full of art ...

    by shrimp56 Written Sep 9, 2003

    Favorite thing: There is plenty of sculpture on the university campus -- here is a contrast between what I call "metalman" in the engineering complex and the fish fountain behind Coffman Student Union.

    Favorite thing: The campus of the University of Minnesota covers a wide area, but has a lovely traditional central quadrangle. It is pretty even in the snow! The big building is Northrop Auditorium.
