St. Jo's College

On our road trip to see the Sandhill cranes, we were approaching the city of Rensselaer, Indiana. I saw the spires, or bell towers or whatever they are supposed to be called before I saw anything else. I told Roger he had to stop...when we got there we saw that it was a school of some kind. So, we took a left turn on to the campus, I stopped and got the first two pictures.
We continued on around and found out that it was St. Joseph's College....I had not heard of it before, but I am not likely to forget it now. It is a small college in (around 1000 students) in a small town of 5,000-6000. It is a private, Catholic liberal arts college that was founded in 1889.
This is the front of the church...I have fiddled with it in photoshop trying to get the best photo I could. It was taken in the middle of the day with the sun overhead...that is my excuse. If we were not running to late, due to the fog, I would have stopped on the way home for better photos.
