Can you dig it?

Perhaps out of respect for the ferocious winds that make Northwest Ohio winters especially chilly (it's known as the wind belt of the state, apparently), my med school campus has tunnels conveniently connecting nearly every building. This means you can go from the child psychiatry building to the clinic to the education building to the hospital to the library, all the while never poking your head above ground level.

However, some of these tunnels are downright... creepy. Especially because often, you're the only one walking through them. And the ventilation system makes eerie clanking noises. And it's dim and full of echoes.

And also, mysteriously, many of the tunnel walls are painted in wide stripes, in tones of avocado green, mustard yellow, and rust orange. They're kind of hard to see in this picture (though the creepy vibe is plainly apparent).

And when I walk through there, I can't help wondering... am I going to die down here, underground, amid a color scheme from the 70s?
