April 19, 2011 - Robert H. Lurie Tower

There was no snow that day, so we took a drive onto the University of Michigan's North Campus. This is where most engineering students spend their time. The campus has expanded since the last time I was there (1994), with many new buildings. The Robert H. Lurie Engineering Center is built with money from the Anne Robert H. Lurie Foundation. Robert Lurie (BSE IOE ’64, MSE ’66) made his fortune in real estate. The carillon bell tower located on North Campus also bears his name.

Gen X-er near Princeton University in Montgomery Township, New Jersey, with a passion for aquariums, terrariums, technology, and photography. I love hiking in the woods, and my eclectic musical tastes span soca, Afrobeat, calypso, 1990s rap, grunge rock, and alternative genres.
