Didn't tour the school or anything, we just drove by the hands at night. Still pretty neat. Wanted to check them out. Glad we did.

If you are in line with the beliefs supported by this university and its TV programs... you may want to go there -- as a pilgrimage... If you are on the other side of the fence... stay away
