Today I went on a little journey down to Mount Union University to explore, and take some photos. Mount Union actually holds a special place in my heart because, my Aunt Patricia lives right next to the campus. I have been exploring the campus for many years of my life, and today was the first time I was getting paid to do it.
I met a few women at the Solon art show a few weeks ago who mentioned to me that they would love some coasters with images of Mount Union. So, I said NO PROBLEM. I checked the weather, and headed toward Alliance. Naturally, I had to stop at my Aunt's house, and have lunch with her before I went out on my journey. After catching up with my Aunt, I was off to the campus.
On my way down to Alliance I reached out to a friend of mine that I remembered went to college there, and asked what were some good landmarks. She mentioned a rock, yes she said I should take a picture of a rock. I laughed when she told me, but I understood what she was saying when I approached this rock. Apparently the students paint it all the time for different events. Today it was painted for Greek life, in a 70's theme. It is in the middle of the campus, and was really interesting. This is no ordinary rock my friends.
The sun was shining, and I think I got some really neat shots of this cool rock. I then continued on through the campus and stumbled upon some of really neat buildings.
One really popular building that my friend mentioned was Chapman Hall, and I can see why. This building seems like it is definitely the oldest building on campus and has some incredible architecture.
This campus is really nice, and I had a great time hanging out there today. It was really sunny, a bit cold, but I had a really great time. The last stop that I made today in Alliance, doesn't have anything to do with Mount Union, but it is a landmark that everyone knows about.
A CASTLE!!!! Guys, this is legit a castle, and I have loved this building my entire life. I have always wanted to go play in this castle! I was walking around on the greens of this castle today, and was fantasizing that John Snow was going to appear around the corner. Unfortunately, John was not there, but I did get some cool photos!
Ok, well now I need to create some coasters, and new products with these photos.
Back to work...
