Top of Thompson Library
Not for those who don’t like heights, but the windows at the very top of the library offer some incredible views. The rooms there are also very peaceful for studying, so when you need a break from the books, reach for the phone and snap a selfie.
Gargoyles and grotesques on Orton Hall’s bell tower.

Home to the Orton Geological Museum, you can find over 30,000 specimens, including a 7-foot giant ground sloth and the skull of a Jurassic dinosaur.
