If you are not familiar with the campus, a Google Earth image will show the location of Mitchell Hall at the tip of the green arrow, with enough
of the surrounding area to place it in a recognizable context.
To get a closer and more helpful view you should adjust the zoom control one step
at a time to give whatever degree of detail you desire. As with all Google Earth images,
you may change the view to hide or show labels such as street or building names, change
to a map instead of an aerial photograph, print the image, or e-mail a link to the
map to yourself or others.
As an alternative, you may get an aerial photograph from Google Earth that shows Mitchell Hall and its surrounding area already at a fairly detailed zoom
level. Mitchell Hall will be shown at the tip of the green arrow, as before. You may
change this view in the same ways as described above.
