    Here's an explanation of the clues and what they meant, courtesy of medallion hunt organizer Ed O'Neal.
    1. "From where I sit, I can see the sun rise but also see it set." This clue refers to U.S. 50, which is an east/west highway. Travelers headed east can see the sun rise, and they can see it set as they drive west.
    2. "The grass is cut shorter on one side of the fence than the other side." This refers to the fence where the medallion was hidden. The grass was shorter on one side of the fence.
    3. "Near a few trees would be a good bet." This refers to a line of trees on the south side of the fence.
    4. "A little practice would not hurt." A reference to the college's football practice field just south of the fence.
    5. "Really, it's not that far from a landmark." An allusion to the Landmark Bank branch on North 14th Avenue, across from the college.
    6. "Test the waters before you jump in." A reference to the Austin Pools and Spas sign, located across U.S. 50 from the medallion's hiding place. "Test the waters" alludes to treating pool water with chemicals.
    7. "Get out of your kitchens and just do it." This clue refers to the Kitchens Inc. sign and the Mead Lumber Do-It Center sign, both of which are near the hiding place.
    8. "Some people think I'm mental when I make these clues." A reference to the Area Mental Health offices, near the back entrance to the college.
