Throwback Thursday — Campus Entrance Sign

Standard

Did you know the sign at the campus entrance isn’t the original Bryant sign? The sign we have now was put up in 2004 when we changed our name from Bryant College to Bryant University. Check out the original sign from 1971 (with students posing on top):

Check This Out! — Audubon: On the Wings of the World

Standard

Audubon-Cover-RGBLooking for a book that’s in tune with nature? How about a graphic novel about the namesake of The National Audubon Society? Audubon: On the Wings of the World by Fabien Grolleau & Jérémie Royer is based on the life of ornithologist and naturalist John James Audubon who traveled the United States in the 1800s observing and illustrating birds.

This book features great art, a strong story, and is clear and easy to read, even for those who don’t read comics. There are also reproductions of Audubon’s paintings at the end so you can observe his style first-hand. This is a great book for the end of the summer, since there’s time to read it outside and enjoy the nice weather, then do some exploring of your own!
