One reader who correctly guesses the campus on which this photograph was taken will win a one-year subscription to our print magazine. Also, get the answer from last week's contest.

Check back next Friday for notes on where this photograph was taken—and see if your guess was accurate. And, in the meantime, consider submitting a photograph of your own.

Happy guessing!
