Lisa Gives Nick The $3 Tour! Amazing!
We met up with "Little Lisa" in Parking Lot #18 with Nick, Bob, and Robin! It's summer time and a good time for a walk around this huge campus!
Did You Know? - A university (Latin: universitas, "a whole", "a corporation") is an institution of higher (or tertiary) education and research which grants academic degrees in various subjects. Universities typically provide undergraduate education and postgraduate education. The word "university" is derived from the Latin universitas magistrorum et scholarium, which roughly means "community of teachers and scholars.

We began at the Student Union
Did You Know? - A student center is a type of building found on university campuses. In the United States, such a building may be called a student union, student commons, union or student center. The term "student union" refers most often in the United States to a building.
The first student union in America was Houston Hall, at the University of Pennsylvania, which opened January 2, 1896 and remains in operation to this day. The first Ohio Union at Ohio State University was Enarson Hall. The building opened in 1911 and was the first student union to be built at a state university and the fourth of its kind in the United States.
Oklahoma State University's student center opened in 1950. Subsequent additions, and renovations in 2010, have made the building one of the largest student activity centers in the world at 611,000 sq ft (56,800 m2).
It is a good sized building
Perhaps a swim between classes?
Food is available everywhere!
Loads of open spaces
Walking toward the Engineering buildings
"Nick, we are teasing you!"
"I knew it the whole time"
"I thought you said Lisa was kidding!"
The Engineering buildings are right across the grassy area!
Be prepared to work!
"Lisa knows a lot about this campus!"
This way for Roller Coaster Engineering
Did You Know? - The main responsibilities of a roller coaster engineer are deciding where the tracks should be placed, picking the right roller coaster for a particular environment and making sure all aspects are safe with each roller coaster. To make sure rides are safe, these engineers test them out, making sure all of the weights and speeds are set correctly. Aspiring engineers often need a license, though requirements vary by state.
You can be a structural engineer, mechanical engineer, or an electrical engineer and be part of a roller coaster design team!
There are a lot of laboratories in these buildings!
His name is "Rocky" and he is a flying squirrel!
