Through the advent of social media staples like Instagram and Snapchat, the word “selfie” not only spawned its own hashtag and owns a day of the week – #SelfieSunday or #ss for short – it also won 2013’s Word of the Year award from Oxford Dictionaries.

Some of The Shield’s staff members weigh in on their favorite restrooms on campus to take the selfie of all selfies, the perfect mirror picture.

This underutilized facility allows you to take your selfie as many times as you want until you get the perfect one – all without being disturbed, embarrassed or having to share your mirror space. It’s about quality, not quantity.

The bathroom in the RFWC is conveniently located right next to the weight room so you can hurry and get a good flex pic while you still have a decent body pump. How else would you flex on Instagram? #GirlsWhoLift #CleanEats

There’s nothing quite like that perfect selfie on days when your whole outfit is “on fleek.” With both full length and sink mirrors, your selfie game will be nothing less 100 than as you capture the whole ‘fit for your Snapchat friends without being interrupted by the people who actually use these facilities for their intended purposes.

The loud, echoing hallway and squeaky door in the Technology Center allows you to quickly conceal your cell phone and return to washing your hands when someone unexpectedly walks in on your embarrasing Snapchat.
