After 0.4 mi turn right onto N 92nd  St, then very shortly take the first left onto College Way N. After 0.15 mi turn right on N 95th St. The dial will be on your left ~0.1 mi after turning, on the south edge of the central plaza of the College’s main building. The dial is ~90 meters (~300 ft) east of the cafeteria, in a small garden.

 Meridian Ave N, although interrupted by the college campus, happens to pass just west of this dial. This street’s name comes from the fact that it lies on a basic reference line chosen by the original surveyors of the city – at a longitude of exactly 122°20.00´ W.
