North side of NIH Clinical Center

Contributed by Jessica Kalmazu Stimely

My first thoughts: wow, this place is secure. Second: I want to go here for college! The NIH, from the outside, looks like the most kickin' college campus ever. It has green parts, lots of foot traffic, high and low rise buildings.... it's pretty much gorgeous. However, the clinical center does, in fact, look like a hospital. Even in there they have wall-mounted fish tanks, wide, open areas, and lots and lots of stone.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
