Derryberry in snow.. Nashville gets an average of 3-5 inches of snow a year. We get 20+ average. Since this past winter was cooler then average, I think we were closer to 30 inches this past winter. LOL So I walked many days in the cold snow, actually one of the better times of the year on campus. The guys dress up so sexy in their clothes. ;)

Nice pictures, Heckles. I had never heard of Cookeville or TTU until today. We learn something new everyday at SSA!

College towns rule !

I've never been to Cookeville.

I looked up the enrollment of TnTech as just over 9,000. One of my brother's friends teaches engineering there.

From the photo, Henderson Hall would look very much in keeping with a lot of the buildings at the UofAlabama.

Actually, DruidCity, that building would look more at home at Auburn since it is missing the token Greek Revival portico found on most buildings at Bama. ;)

Great photos, Brandon!

BTW, TTU should seriously consider building a parking deck and creating more pedestrian friendly green spaces between buildings where parking lots presently exist.

Heckles after listening to your descriptions over all these months, I half expected to see wooden shacks with hillbillies sitting on the porches with corncob pipes, confederate flags, with rifles shooting at almost everything.

There are plenty of those things, they're just outside the city limits ;)

Cookeville is not what I call cosmopolitan... And neither are the majority of small college towns in the south. ;)

All the red brick looks a little like Harvard from the air. Neat thread!

Yeah, but at least Bloomington wouldn't be a hillbilly town like Boone. ;)

I see the south as being a little more behind socially then other parts generally speaking. There are pockets of exception, though - especially the cities.

Boone isn't exactly Vail or Aspen..

But I'll agree its a quaint college town, hence why I smiled. BTW, I've been to Boone. It isn't as eclectic in my eyes as you think, though.

I think you forgot about the Ober Gatlinburg ski resort. More people visit there then the Blowing Rock area by far.

But neither of these places are impressive.
