RU Familiar with RU?

by George Barany and Marjorie Russel

This "mid-week level" puzzle (may play somewhat harder for off-campus solvers) was commissioned for the holiday (Dec 2013-Jan 2014) issue of Natural Selections, an unofficial RU publication that provides a creative and fun outlet for the campus community of GB's alma mater/MR's professional home.  After solving the puzzle (spoiler)please click here for a map of some of the sites referenced therein.
