Welcome to 1996. This is my freshman book and as such there'll be some ground rules: I'll make fun of people I know and not show any photos of me. Simple, eh?
The technology has doubtless improved in the last decade or so, and when we see the computer labs filled with those 386s just racing awhile, we'll make fun of them too. Beyond that, though, it doesn't feel as if much has changed. The distance from there to here is brief, but we'll see soon enough what moves quicker than we do.
First there's campus life, which we dive into right away after only a few short pages of empty space and a few photos featuring Samford Hall, Langdon Hall and Hargis Hall. It is mandated by legislature, apparently, that these three buildings get top billing. They share the space for some reason with an oddly composed shot of the RBD library and the always beautiful Toomer's Corner.
All of those places will be discussed in due time, but here you gaze upon The Concourse, the famous walking thorughfare. This was, and has been for decades, the place to hang out between campus and socialize. It is much the same, though the walking space has been extended beyond the top-left margin which might change the dynamic a bit.
This is the place where students play hacky sack, campaign for SGA office, mingle, complain about professors and plan their next party. The photograph is taken from the outside balcony of Haley Center, one of the worst architecturally composed buildings in the western world. But we'll get to that.
