Did you know... Heritage Park has a "Reflection Garden?" It's technically a monument to faculty and staff (nice touch) but also creates a peaceful space for students to relax... (all pictures mine)
I've never seen anyone relax here but theoretically it's possible :D I like Heritage Park and I wish it could be expanded - maybe the new shade trees by IRT are part of that.
Did you know... the Engineering building (the old one) has a hallway with various student projects hanging from the ceiling? It's pretty cool and I wish we showed off student work more often (hence the Student Innovation Gallery post). on the end there in red is the human-powered submarine (or an early model anyway). I believe it's called the Talon-1 and you have to crawl in there to propel it yourself. They won awards with that submarine a few years back. Read more about that sub (and the club that built it) here.
Did you know... the Owl sculpture outside the Alumni Office is actually the wiring for a topiary, meaning a bush shaped like something (remember Edward Scissorhands?). Here's how the topiary looked during Homecoming Week... slowly but surely crawling up the frame. You might have noticed that plants are growing up some of the stadium framework (as intended) too.
Going to end with a shot of the new Night Owls wrapping on the carts because, quite frankly, not sure where else to put it. But I must commend Student Government for injecting so much FAU spirit into everything and hope they continue to do so.
To the current students: if you know somebody working for Night Owls, see if you can ride with them one night because it's pretty funny. To the alumni: sorry you missed out. But now you know what goes on there.
