While Phoenix is not exactly known for its night skies, Arizona is. On a new moon night, the desert lights up with the cosmos around us. There are quite a few cool astronomical events that will occur next year that you will be able to see within town and on the UAT campus.
The Watchers of the Wall are the Student Ambassadors who defend the front desk. I’m one of these said Watchers that perform these daily tasks. I am but a simple Knight with a monster in my sheath always prepared to joust. Why there are also other knights! Such as Sir John he is the Jester of the Wall. Then there is Sir Jordan a true man of merit with chivalry unrivaled. We also have Sir Hakim who is not afraid to show off his pride. Another Knight is Sir Andrew who can charm his way out of every situation. Ah yes how could we forget Lady Bailey she a greenhorn just like me, formed a rivalry for the coat of arms purple. Our Lady Stefani a Baron in her own right orders us and make sure we are well rewarded for our duties. As we serve the High Lord Sir Robert of the high table, he gives us the honor to serve in his name. We man the cleverly named Wall, the “Donut” and it resembles just that, A Donut.
Maxwell has been a resident of the quad for about two years now. Believe it or not, last month was the anniversary of Maxwell’s first appearance on campus!
Here at University of Advancing Technology, we have an exciting event called Humans Vs Zombies, or HVZ for short. HVZ is a week-long event dedicated to experiencing what it would be like to try and survive the zombie apocalypse, just like the video games! Hearing about this event was one of the really cool factors that made me love this school! This event is fun and different from your typical university.
Summer is winding down and the weather outside is getting cooler. UAT, however is warming up for the Start of the Fall Semester. Starting September 4th, Classes will be starting up again and students will in full swing, getting the knowledge needed to pursue their goals. There are some interesting changes that are happening in the new semester. Lets take a look, shall we?
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) is a pretty small campus with only two buildings: the main campus building and the dormitory. I discovered a whole new world of UAT when I moved into Founder's Hall, a melting pot of geek culture, where studious hackers, (really) excited robotics students, digital artists and designers gather to talk about the future of technology, crush energy drinks, tackle homework, shoot some pool, game all night, hash out problems and form lasting friendships.
The University of Advancing Technology is different. You can tell as soon as you walk in the door just how different it is and how strong the culture is. But what makes it so different from other universities? For me, it's our people—the friendly community of geeks who help each other out, make each other laugh and push each other to innovate and create.
