If it makes any difference to you, please wear "walking shoes" this week.

- will make sketches of 3 aspects of campus view: a) front of campus - aesthetic view. b) looking up at campus hill from old river valley below the tennis courts. c) looking across campus wings from 2nd floor of E wing.

- sketch and compare with aerial view via Google maps.
- observations on advantages of each view via discussion and notes.
