The Tales of the Geek Underclass College Map

College Maps

Red areas are the elevated walkways. These were off limits during lunch and recess lest anyone got 'accidently' thrown over the edge. Stairs consisted of a puke green stairwell in the middle of block N, a rickety iron fire escape at the west end of the same block, the main staircase under the tower (K) and a flight overlooking the Principal's private garden between blocks J and Q. Blue areas are covered, ground level walkways. Two storey buildings were concentrated around the quadrangle and are indicated with a darker shade of grey.
