Found it at 16:30, 27 November 2002. Found it as described with the exception of the paint scheme. It now sports the school logo & crest.

A position near the water tower could not be occupied and the listed coordinates are about 130 feet north of the tower in front of the university police station. (The tower is directly south of the station.) WGS84 coordinates found by 4 minute occupation with 6 strong satellites and 1 intermitent WAAS satellite.
