Buckle up, because this might be a little bit tricky! Will you be able to tell the difference between a dilapidated ghost town and the Weingarten Learning Resources Center? Find out in the quiz below.


Puzzling! Is this the computer lab at Weingarten? Or is it the inside of a decaying town hall building, abandoned years ago and subsequently lost to the mists of time? Go ahead and use your best judgment on this one.


Now here’s a toughie. Could this be nothing more than your run-of-the-mill hallway? Or could it be a forgotten corridor, singed by the ravenous coal fires of Centralia, too inhabitable and toxic to support human life? Honestly, it’s hard to tell.


Think carefully. This sorry scene has got to be from Picher, Oklahoma, right?

Come on. That’s definitely a piece of rubble sticking out of the trash.


What could this be? A forever defunct venue of commerce and entertainment, left to rot and return to the earth from whence it came? Or just the common area in Weingarten? You’ll need all pistons firing to answer this one, that’s for certain.


If you guessed that all of these were pictures taken in the Weingarten Learning Resources Center, then congratulations! You are able to tell the difference between Weingarten and a forsaken, empty town in the American Midwest.

If you guessed otherwise… well, I honestly can’t blame you.
