Don’t fail to explore buildings that may seem all wrong for you.  “I am not an engineer . . .”   There are great places to hang out and displays about what your classmates are up to from one end of the campus to the other.  The East Asian Library has inspiring spaces that you don’t need Chinese, Japanese, or Korean to appreciate.  The Environmental Design Library has a monumental concrete angel and stunning displays about how to build things.  The new Engineering Library has a fishbowl design, great for people watchers.  If you prefer to do your touring in cyberspace, you can do this clear back to 1912 with a celebration going on this whole year:
