Ohio Stadium after 2001 Expansion

I visited the Ohio State campus November 1, 2015, with Ruth Ann (her first visit) and two of my three brothers an their wives (Jim and Claudia, Ted and Beth), my first time on campus in more that 25 years; besides walking around the Oval, went to two areas just off the Oval: (1) Wexner Center & Mershon Auditorium at the NE corner and (2) Mirror Lake at the SW corner. At the end of the afternoon, we stopped at Ohio Stadium (much expanded from my years on campus). Larger trees blocking views of some buildings along the Oval were among the noticeable changes. The OSU horseshoe-shaped stadium was expanded by going out & up, and also by adding new, permanent seating in whatg had been this open (S) end; built 1922, stadium initially seated 66,210 but now has capacity of 104,944; bleachers in S end had boosted capacity earlier, but nowhere near as much as the redo completed 2001
