I’d already had a introduction to building 18 during Welcome day and could make my way around without any help. At the equipment check out station I actually ran into Sarah, who had presented in our class just earlier that day! I had actually already met her in building 18 when I needed help logging on to the wifi, So it’s cool to know if I need help, I can usually find her in the area. On a side note, I had never seen the inside of the equipment center before, it’s very colorful!
Like I said, I’d been around this building before, so while I did know where the Blue Cyc wall was, I wasn’t able to get in and get a picture because the door was locked. So I took a picture of the door sign instead. Another side note: why do people call it ‘the green room’ of it’s blue?
I went to the Center building and followed the smell of popcorn to the Center for Student Engagement! I had no idea this place was even here. I was doing work, so I didn’t get myself any popcorn but I really wish I had; it’s free! To be honest I’m still not really sure what the Center for Student Engagement actually does, so I may have to revisit to discover what sort of help I can get from them should I need it. Also, to get popcorn.
I’d actually had my art featured here during the Student Art Gallery last year, and the gallery really just gets better and better everyday with the art featured. The picture I took was a close up of this really intricate vase I saw. The fact that this was made from someone here at LCC just, completely blew me away. It looks like something that should belong in a museum! It was absolutely inspiring to see it, and everything featured there.
The Art-o-Mat! The idea itself that you can pay for surprise art, is really interesting, and if I ever have five dollars to spare I might try and use it! I’m not usually one to spend money if I don’t know what I’ll be getting out of it, but I think art that inspires is worth the price.
I dropped by the Library, or reference counter, and the ladies there really did help me while I was trying to find some of the places I hadn’t been too before. I already have the text books and the like I need for classes, so I don’t think I’ll be going there too often, but it does seem like a nice little area to hang out in and get some work done, so maybe in the future I’ll get to enjoy the library and all its resources.
The next place I went was the silver sculpture out front the Health & Wellness Building. I’d never been to that side of the campus before, and it was super pretty! The sculpture itself had a lot of attributes about it I loved, like the way the negative space in the sculpture resembled a human body! I’m also a sucker for the color green, and the little glass pieces at the top really caught my eye.
Next I went by Ingram’s office. I originally took a picture of him sitting at his computer, but it didn’t really turn out, so I took an image of this adorable cat sculpture sitting on his desk. I didn’t ask him about it but I really should have.
The ladies at the reference desk actually helped direct me to the media creation lab, which conveniently happened to be right behind me. It was so quite in there I didn’t even realize there were people in there working when I walked in to start taking pictures. I may end up using this lab to work on projects for other classes so I can have the right version of the Adobe Creative Cloud. This image is the only one I had to do an real editing to, because it was originally much darker in the room, then this image is. I do like the angle I got of this shot though!
I’ve visited Judy Gates a couple times, and she was ultimately the reason I joined the Multimedia program in the first place. I otherwise would have gone and done my general education, and thus far, joining the Multimedia program feels like the best decision I could have made.
Next, I went by Mrs. Teresa’s office. I had actually seen it during the tour and really loved the decorations in the window, especially the little alligator sculpture. The image with the alligator didn’t really turn out however, So I used the image of the tall frog and the mouth thing? I’m not sure, but I do like the teeth on that thing! I’m curious if Teresa made them all herself or if they were gifts from past students?
Going around campus taking pictures was much more fun then it sounded at first. I was introduced to places around I hadn’t been before, and looked at the places I had been in a different light! It was also nice getting to know some of the real names for places. Like The Students First Building! I had no idea that’s what it was called, I just called it the number one building.
Last but certainly not least, I stopped by the front garden, to take a picture for my construction shot. I’d never really taken the time to look at the garden before, and it was really beautiful. From this angle, it also kind of reminded me of the shape of a turkey, so I guess this might count as a turkey shot as well! It really was just fun to be in the area and breathe the garden air, although I imagine it would look better in the summer light.
