    There are so many cool places at ISU, I was wondering where the coolest places people have been, on campus. It could be somewhere most people can't go (press box) or it could be someplace that everyone goes (MU).

    I'm not sure if I should say the coolest place I've been.:wink:

    I liked the greenhouse on the top of Bessey, the field of Jack Trice, the tunnels underneath one of the engineering buildings (can't remember the name), and the vaunted tiers of the library.

    Top of the campanile. Being friends with a couple student security guards and one of the campus police is sometimes a good thing! :yes:

    It doesn't get a lot cooler than central campus when a brisk wind rolls through in the dead of winter :wink:

    To seriously answer the question though, a bunch of us went "urban exploring" on campus a few times when we were freshmen/sophomores. Our goal was to make it to the roof of as many buildings as we could, and we were surprised that we were able to get to at least 5-6 of the taller buildings around campus. I don't even remember the names of the ones we got to but one in particular we had to go through a greenhouse to get to the "outer roof".

    A few of my favorites: The locker room area in Hilton, Jamie Pollard's conference room on his first day in office, the inside of Cy (got to be the mascot).

    I always found the courtyard of Lagomarcino a special place.

    Got to agree with you on that one, it is a pretty awesome experience, even though I would rather watch it from the stands.
