Stir Up Saturday – Campus Map


Remember last week’s SUS? Those were the last posts in April five years ago. Soooo…

Instead of letting the dead air fill the space, I took a look back at the first April in UofM history. The first thing that jumped out at me was the birth of my youngest. He’s seven today. He got the game tying hit in his baseball game Thursday night. He’s having a birthday party with his friends tomorrow. I can’t believe it has been so long – both with him and the site.

I certainly made it sound like the site would be down from much longer, but it was back pretty quickly. The other thing I noticed was my “previously mentioned” hyperlink. It had something that I really liked, but can’t remember the last time I did it.

I used old postcards as UofM buildings and named them after prominent M.U.S.C.L.E. people. I honestly have no sense of whether people liked it, hated it, or even noticed. I was going to pull them all together, but I didn’t have a consistent file naming system.

Hutch-Smith Hall

I did find the Hutch-Smith Hall picture which was used when Philosophy 200 launched.

Wait…I just remembered something.

God damn. I am a nerd.

When I started the site I wanted to keep track of the building names. I created a post that kept a list. I never published it because it was just my own note. But I went back – and there it was.

Turns out I only forgot one building (according to my list). It was the Economics building. Can you guess the name?

It’s weird that I named a building for a largely throwaway post. But it’s a perfect name.

I feel like a campus map could be kind of fun. I’ll have to give it some thought.

And find my other postcards.

    Swoodington Hall for the Economics building. Excellent!

    I would definitely be interested in seeing what you come up with for a Campus Map.
