The BS CREW'S First Building Trip


After exiting the tunnels on night we realized we were close to Robeson when we got out and we were both extremely thirsty so we decided to try and look around in there. Getting in was no problem so we looked around a bit; we saw the mechanical room, some empty classrooms, and got some water. From there we went over the bridge and into Pamplin. The main thing we did there was check out the mechanical room, or should I say rooms. There was a lot to see in this area. On the way back to our dorms we walked through the archway under Burruss and luckily noticed a door that was just slightly ajar. We went into the Auditorium, which was pretty impressive. The lighting was poor so not many pictures turned out. All of the percussion instruments were set up on the stage including a drum kit that I had to fight the urge to play.

The BS CREW'S Second Building Trip


March 24 2002 we looked around in Davidson, then took the pedestrian tunnel into Hahn. Hahn connects into Robeson, and Robeson connects to Pamplin via a bridge over the sidewalk. We looked around both of the mechanical rooms in Pamplin, and explored a bit of the mini tunnel going around the building. Then we located the pedestrian tunnel from Pamplin to GBJ, unfortunatley the door was locked and no one was properly equipped to open it. From there we exited and decided to go into Burruss to try and access GBJ from the archway. Getting into Burruss was no problem but from there all the interior doors were locked, including the one that would have given us access to GBJ. When we were about ready to call it a night, a checked the door of McBryde. It being unlocked was about our only stroke of luck for the night. We were free to explore the first floor but all the stairway doors were locked, and when we got into the elevator we set off some kind of alarm. With that, we were back in the dorms in no time.

Two New Buildings Explored


March 12, 2003, I wanted to check out the 2 major construction projects on campus. First I looked at the new building behind Litton Reeves, it seems like construction is moving very slowly, there are not even stairs inside yet, just rickety extension ladders. The bottom floor will be mostly underground, then the secong floor is sort of split level. It looks like an interesting floor plan and I will have to go back when it is closer to complete. The new Chem building behind Hahn Hall is progressing nicely, now counters etc. are being installed in the class rooms. But the roof is this buildings best feature.

Additional Trip Information


Since these trips we have discovered motion detectors in many areas of Burruss hall. It would be very unwise to set of one of there possibly silent alarms. Exploring buildings can be even more dangerous than tunnels, at least from the getting caught aspect. Exercise caution in all buildings after hours, and having an excuse for being in the building late at night ready to use can be helpful too.
