Let there be light
Started my New Year off in beautiful San Diego . . . I arrived after a 5 hour flight from ATL to SAN, thankfully DELTA provided entertainment and I watched the BCS Championship during most of the flight. The ladies of Zeta Nu welcomed me that next morning with a tour of their beautiful campus.
The UCSD campus is adorned with the Stuart Collection, public art projects scattered throughout campus. Below are some of my favorites I saw . . .
The Sun God is the most iconic. Students walk under statue before they take their exams for good luck. Or, if you are like me who walks under it because you always want lady luck on your side.
Another part of the collection are the Trees. So above is the Music Tree. There are three trees scattered through eucalyptus groves on campus. One of the Trees is silent, one plays music and the Literary Tree speaks. They said that the Literary Tree, proclaimed President Obama's inaugural speech in 2009.
The center of campus boast this breathtaking view that is the Geisel Library. Named after Audrey and Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known under the pen name, Dr. Seuss. The Geisel's were prominent residents of La Jolla, the city where UCSD is located.
Near the library fixes a Dr. Seuss statue with words of wisdom from the last book he published. And of course . . . the man behind The Cat in the Hat attended Dartmouth in 1925 where he became a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity.
Oh the places you'll go is right.
I never imagined Kappa would take me to where I can say I've been today
or introduce me to some of the most incredible people.
When I found out my January schedule would take me to San Diego
I didn't think much of it.
And a few weeks later I found myself crossing paths with my family.
Pictured above is my grandfather's sister's daughter and her husband.
So north, south, east or west, I am more than lucky, I am truly blessed.
