The Campus with a Lazy Creek.
While multiple higher education institutions now include a lazy river in their expansion plans, one college has had a lazy creek running from one end of campus to the other since its inception in 1923. Yet students there seem to have little interest in sitting on an inner tube and coasting around the campus. Instead, they seem focused on climbing the multiple steps and hills leading to the campus buildings where classes, cultural events and fitness facilities are housed and where their work assignments are based.
