Well, I can't decide if that's an old military installation or a mental institution :-b

I'll go with my gut here and guess that it's West Point.

If it wasn't right the first time someone guessed that, I doubt it's right now ;)

Hmmm...might it be the Royal Canadian Institute for the Criminally Insane?

The collegiate gothic architecture is going to end up misdirecting all of us, IMO.

Nonetheless, I guess Washington and Lee University, Lexington, VA?

Well, I know it's not the Citidal, and you said it's not West Point, so that leaves us with the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia.

Is this correct Sir!?

Sure, ;-)
Only people who were born, had lived or went to school in Wisconsin would know that.

But I'm a Southern boy who has never been to the promised land that of flows cheese & butter.

In all fairness I only got this one by default. The credit should go to Cardinal.... and Google. :-$
