Print with a road-map theme with numbers, an arrow and an x. Blue arrow extending from top left quadrant ending in center of composition within a light orange circle. "St. Joseph" is printed along left edge of the arrow's stem. "St. Mary's" appears on the left side of the circle and "Notre Dame" in green appears on the right top of circle. The numbers 2, 31, and 20 in black encircled in yellow protrude off the orange cirle with blue lines, acting as roads/highways. "Mishawaka" appears in blue next to the "X" in the orange circle. "South Bend" is seen at the very bottom of the composition.
