The Banana Slug Mascot...seriously


An aerial view, the colleges are tucked into the pines at the lower left, but the campus includes the open space also.

 Two of the colleges


This is Crown College, the College of Science and Technology, from above and...


...at entrance level, which is Lauren's dorm & college.

Since Lauren will be going here, most likely, for four years anyway, I imagine there will be more.

the banana slug. and i thought having a native american tribe as a mascot was unique.

looks like a great place, though.

strangely, that ugly little banana slug is starting to grow on me, a bit anyway, but I think having a tribe has got to be even more unique.

I hope it will be a great experience for her. *fingers crossed*

I know, it is beautiful, isn't it? We revisited it today, took some friends from out of town, and seeing their response helped solidify for her that she made the right decision.

'OMG can I go there to:)' I know, right?

Funny story: first time we visited a couple of months ago, she did not like it, too wild, too unfamiliar, but for whatever reason, she changed her mind, accepted their offer so, we went back today and she loves it now. We found the college where she will be dorming and while everything was closed, summer session hasn't started, still, we were able to wander around getting a feel of where she'll be much of the time. I think that the fact that she got to experience the place through the eyes of friends from out of town has helped her appreciate it a lot more.

My BFF's son is going to go there this year. My friend and I have been cracking up at the idea of wearing our new Banana Slug sweatshirts that he has promised to get us. I loved the pictures and can't wait to visit the campus.

That's so cool, my BFF whose son is also going, was telling me, just day, about the sweatshirts and how we have to get ours :) We visited again today and it really is beautiful, we roamed around Crown College getting a feel for the place. Do you know which college your friend's son is dorming in?

He will be dorming at College 8. I looked at the pictures online and it is a beautiful school. It will be fun to visit him there.

I remember you said that you actually applied, right? that's so cool that you still have some logos left. When we first visited awhile back, Lauren was not impressed, too sort of wild, but we visited again today and she was much more impressed, good thing too.

it's considered one of the prettiest in the country apparently and, interestingly, the banana slug is actually starting to grow on me :)

Re: The Campus
it is pretty, isn't it? Lauren's orientation isn't until July 19 and she doesn't begin, as in her move-in date, until September 16.

Did you tell me where Sam is going? Will she be staying with you or living on campus?

Once you do get oriented, let me know how it goes, sounds like something I might need.
