Update 48 - University of Wenzel - Martin Campus

Today we visit the University of Wenzel - Martin Campus. The university has around 10,000 undergraduate students and another 5,000 graduate students. The university's athletic teams are called the Red Raiders, and despite its mascot being a buccaneer, the university is still under pressure from native peoples to change the name. A total of 18 Red Raider athletic teams compete in WCAA Division I.

The university consists of seven undergraduate colleges, a graduate school, a nursing school, a law school, and a medical school and hospital.




The title picture is the northeast corner of the university consisting mainly of the medical school, hospital, and medical research laboratories.

In this mosaic, we see more lecture halls, academic centers, and student housing. The UWM campus is quite condensed and consists of buildings spanning many eras. Towards the bottom of the picture we can see Andrew Marshall Track & Field.







Now facing west, we see Hollins Arena, more housing, and the original core campus.






Recreational opportunities are available throughout campus, especially on the west side near Hollins Arena.



North edge of campus with a METRA railroad as a boundary.


Facing south we see the UWM METRA station, student housing, and recreational fields.


Facing east we see Red Raiders Stadium home of the D-1 football team.


Facing north we see more athletic fields.






I hope you enjoyed that update. I clearly haven't mastered creating a massive university yet, haha, but I am for the most part pleased with how it turned out. Check out the District of Wenzel Street Map to get an idea where we are. Tell me what you think of the new map style (scroll down to the farthest south area of google map style).

Nice university campus! You made even the Maxis elements look nice thanks to their surroundings.

The size of the campus makes it look like more than 15,000 students could study there...

Thanks, I wish I had included a little more detail like naming the individual halls, creating a logo, etc, but just didn't have time or the skill, haha. Maybe in the future. I'm not sure how many students could study at the campus, maybe more could. Thanks!

If you don't mind my asking, how did you create that cluster of buildings arranged around a courtyard (I'm guessing they're the "student housing" you mention) in that second mosaic?

They are from a modular university pack somewhere around here...I'll get back to you with a link if I can find it.
