While running an errand on campus today, I decided to sort out the distance situation so I could give our visitors a better idea of the traveling times by foot at the Important Campus Locations (those having festival events).
My methodology was thus: I measured my number of steps and rough time estimate from the Randall Library to Kenan Auditorium-the points farthest away from each other of each building. I am now going to extrapolate the time for the journeys one might be taking on foot around campus.
Randall to Kenan was 321 steps, and I was moving at a pace of almost 2 steps per second, but I’m reducing this to 1.33333 (ad infinitum) steps per second since I’m a fast walker. At that pace, the journey would have taken about 4 minutes. Based on this, I would make the following estimates:
Randall-Leutze: 4.5 minutes
Quads-Dining Hall: 5.5 minutes
Burney-Quads: 15 minutes
Quads-Kenan: 20 minutes
Leutze-Dining Hall: 20 minutes
Dining Hall-Kenan: 24 minutes
Burney-Kenan: 6 minutes
FASCINATING STUFF FOLKS! This campus is a glorious place for riding a bicycle, by the way. Flat as a pancake at the bottom of the stack.
Here is the interactive campus map on the UNCW website. They don’t provide the distances (maybe I should send them my analysis?)
