SIU Carbondale: a quick fly-through How to Frame Walls for a Basement Room 5 months ago   03:47
Having earned an undergraduate degree in architecture and a master's in media (photography) both from SIUC, I wanted to create a quick video of just some of the major areas of my alma mater as it is today. I have 14 photographs that accompany this video that may be found at:
This genre of music got me through many many sleepless nights while in college. If it's "not your thing", that's ok...just mute the sound or turn it down. Hope you enjoy. Drone/UAV video by Nathan Wambold of

NOTE: This video is the sole property of Nathan Wambold, of OurFocus, and I was not solicited to create such by SIU.

Awesome. Class of 1979. First time back last summer...July 2018. 40 years gone. Loved SIU-C. Wish you had covered Thompson Point, The Towers, Communications Building, The Strip etc. Maybe in a part 2? Thanks for sharing!

help needed in finding the ranking of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale as per Times Ranking of World Universities. Subject wise, Agriculture department ranking needed. I am not sure whether my findings are correct.

Hi! I'm currently a student at SIUC in the Cinema and Photography Dept. Right now I'm doing an experimental film in CP102 and I'm using some found footage of the campus from the 60's,70's,80's etc. Its there anyway I can get a few clips from this video (maybe 4 seconds worth) to use in that project? If not, that's cool. Really great work, man.

Nice video and good job! Even though you came close to Parkinson Laboratory, it was not featured. Parkinson building is quite imposing, was wondering why you left out my department. Did I see Engineering? I doubt. Where are the three residential towers? Those are major landmarks too!
