There’s several great places around campus to “Say Cheese.” Here are some of our favorites.

The Letters

The classic place to take the ultimate UMHB photo is on the UMHB letters. Whether you’re by yourself or with a group, this is the perfect backdrop for most occasions.

Grafitti Wall

There’s a great mural on the supports of the Loop 121 bridge across from the SportsPlex. If you’re looking for something a little more “edgy” than the boring old letters, this might be your spot.

Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Building

Yes, it is just a building, but it is a B-E-A-UTIFUL one, and it’s a great backdrop for photos. Like a caring mother, the building embraces the courtyard and provides a stunning visual… especially when the subject is wearing contrasting purple scrubs.

Stoked to be joining the Scott & White team in Temple! 🤘🏽

Crusader Stadium

It’s difficult to find a more beautiful purple backdrop for any of your UMHB photos. It’s a great place to “say cheese!”

Independence Columns

I know this one is in a different city. But, if you make the trip to Independence, make sure to throw the C proudly in front of the columns. Don’t let the north campus claim this one as their own!

Luther Memorial

Yes, we know that it’s a monument to a burned down building, but it sure does look great on photos. We fully approve of this backdrop!


These letters only make an appearance at CruCamp, but they definitely make for a great photo. Like they say at Olive Garden, “when you’re here, you’re family.”

We’d love to see your photos at any of these fantastic locations. Tag #myUMHB or #goCru, and we might even feature your post!
