Friday’s always seem to be the bloggiest.  No more after this (mostly due to the fact campus shuts down in 25 minutes for the Butler basketball game.)

Google is hosting their annual ‘International Model Your Campus’ competition, with great prizes like iPod Touches and Wii’s for the winners.

You can get all the information here.

Thanks for the shout out! It’s really easy once you get your first model started. I haven’t had time to work on them lately, but I have over half our campus done now. I think it’s a great initiative by Google to make other people do their work, but I for one enjoy 3D modeling, so this is the perfect opportunity to get free software!

What the benefits are to doing this other than personal satisfaction, well, I don’t know, but hopefully some of our online students will be able to view them and see what the campus looks like in 3D.

I would like to start on a few, but our buildings are all like 75 years old and look like this:
