Media Locations At Lane

I’ll be honest and admit that I only decided to take this class to mark off one of the requirements for my degree. Being mostly a science student I never really thought I would enjoy this class as much as I have so far. I didn’t particularly enjoy the photography aspect of this assignment but I did enjoy exploring the campus to find all of these locations.

Media Checkout

This was probably the easiest for me to find on campus being only a short walk from the Intro to media Classroom. Though I had never been in this building before this desk was easy to find being front and center in the building.


I didn’t manage to get a picture of the blue cyc wall on campus mainly because every time I went to building 18 the doors to the production studios were always locked. I knew for a fact it was in one of them because I looked through every other room in building 18. Not being a part of the media program I didn’t know whether you had to ask staff to gain access or if there were scheduled times that they were open to students.

Center For Student Engagement.

This wasn’t very difficult to find either within the center building because there were many signs pointing to this office. though I did walk by this many times while looking for another location but I’ll discuss that later in this post.

Main Gallery

I already Knew where the main art gallery was because I had walked through it many times making my way to a Drawing class in my first semester here.


I had a great deal of trouble finding this small machine I searched all the art buildings multiple times trying to find this particular object. Once I did finally find It I feel a bit embarrassed to admit that I had past it nearly 100 times during my time attending lane and had never paid it a second glance. It just goes to show how unfamiliar people can be with their own surroundings.

Library reference counter.

This was also a good place that I could find fairly easily already having prior knowledge of the libraries whereabouts. Surprisingly their was an odd lack of people at the time I took the picture most of the library staff seemed to be in a meeting of some kind.

The Statue.

This was probably one of the harder locations to find mainly because I had no idea which building was health and wellness. I eventually gave up and pulled a map up on my phone so I could find the building but the frustration of that particular search lingered for quite sometime due to how large the location was.

Mary Office.

I knew where the main art buildings were prior to this and made my way over to them to begin skimming through all the offices. Coincidentally this was the very first office I saw in the building.

Creation Lab

This was probably the most difficult room for me to find of all these areas I knew it was in the center building due to the assignment, but I looked through every room on every floor of the center building. On more than one occasion in fact. I eventually had to ask someone where it was because there were no signs pointing to it in the building. Once they pointed me in the right direction I realized why I had missed the room because it was situated in the front left corner of the library and I had written it off as another group study room.

Judy Gates Office.

I actually had to come back to get this picture several times because she was in the office the first few times and I was to anxious about the situation to ask her if I could take the picture. So this picture was the result of several very awkward conversations for me with someone I didn’t know at all.

Mel’s Office.

I had to search the entirety of building 18 to find this particular office mainly because I hadn’t expected the office to be shared by two people but I found it fairly easy after looking at the names in more detail.


I found this building easily enough having been here to discuss schedules and finances before. I will say that I always liked the design of this building especially this room.

Dirt Turkey.

This was probably my favorite part of my trip. After my second time exploring building 18 I came outside to see several Turkey’s wandering the sidewalk and the grass one even bold enough to come right up to me.  This one in the image however stood out because it wasn’t wandering with the rest of the group but rather laying in the dirt away from them. It would consistently rub the top of its head in the dirt and even flipped over to rub its back in the dirt once as well. I wanted to try and capture it doing this action because I found it funny and even a little cute. Whenever I got close enough for a clear picture though it would stop and look at me so I eventually settled with the image above.

    I had the hardest time finding the art-o-mat as well! I literally spent a solid half hour trying to find tehdarn thing, and then when I finally found where it was I was like “Are you kidding me!” Anyhow, although it was difficult to find, i’m glad I’m that I wasn’t the only who missed wht was right front of our faces! Great work on the scavenger hunt!

    Hello! I didn’t mean to post the last comment! But anyhow, I had a hard time finding the health and wellness center as well. I had to ask campus security to send me in the right direction… But once I saw how big it was, I wondered how I could’ve missed! I love the shot you took, great job!
