There were days when I'd walk out of class and the quad would look just like the last frame here. The only way you could be on that quad and not have multiple squirrels in your immediate field of vision was to have your eyes closed or be blind. It would seem pretty ominous, like the squirrels were preparing for some imminent doom the rest of us couldn't see coming.
Then again, maybe I'm just crazy. "I see squirrels" has a nice ring to it.
(The name change of "Lavery Lawn" to "LeChase Commons"--named after the construction company that mysteriously gets all of Fisher's construction work, including relandscaping that quad--was a controversial decision. So Skip chooses the PC "Lavery/LeChase Lawn/Commons" here.)
