UW Under Construction

cons

For those of you on campus who have missed it (not possible), UW is under construction. Yes, that’s right, what seems like every building, street and sidewalk has been under construction since the first day of summer break.

UW News put together a slide show with images from all the fun. Check it out here. I thought they were interesting photos as they have encapsulated my life for the last month.

Union South: Live!

Who needs to step outside their office to see the demolition and construction of Union South when you can simply watch from the comfort of your office!

See: http://unionsouth2.doit.wisc.edu/view/index.shtml .

You too can now spend your day watching a bulldozer level what used to be a bowling alley.

STS Warp Tour 2009

Today, being the last day of the school year, is the day STS rocks out. Above is a photo from our jam session.

I learned something today as I watched Student Trainers get 98% on Expert Level on the excellent game of Rock Band. STS Trainers are either really good at hand-eye coordination OR they play Rock Band whenever they have free time. I am thinking it is the first.
