I remember having a fun time trying to find the physics labs that are on like the .75th floor of the Science building, only accessible by a stairwell that you wouldn't notice unless you knew it was there. Personally I don't mind an excuse to be late for class here and there!
There used to be a map for the science building online. However, it disappeared when the website for professors switched over to faculty-web becuase it was located somewhere within the old site. Too bad it's not there anymore...
Nancy is right about that map. It was really nice, and professors used it to find their classrooms, too
What was so great about it was its search feature. You entered your room number and then the map refreshed itself to show you the route in a red line leading from one of the back doors through the hallways and right to the correct classroom.
I wonder if it would be possible for someone on campus with a web-related job to track down that little piece of history in the archives.
I don't have access to the fancy online map, but I had a copy of a map made by some students a few years ago. It is a little out of date but I think it will still be useful. I added it to the Registrar Space.
The best part about the interactive map was it was created by a student.
Since it is gone and unlikely to be retrieved, the piece of advice I can pass along from my OR-100 peer facilitator is this: once you find your classroom the first time, exit by the nearest stairwell and see which door to the building you come out of. Then use that door each time to go to that classroom. It won't help you find it the first time, but will make it so you don't get lost for weeks on end.
Finding a particular room in the science building is a huge task and is really time consuming at times. There should be a better way to map or provide directions, especially to rooms that are not where they are expected to be - in a sequence. Probably providing directions at places where people are bound to get confused (I know this is an Engineering college and people coming here are assumed to be smart enough to figure their way out but it would be helpful if we let them process their brains for more important things).
