    I'm surprised they hire somebody to make that. Surely some students could do it for a project.

    Very well done.

    Not realistic. Those stupid swans should have been attacking the figure skaters. That's what they would have done in real life.

    Re: Interactive greeting card from President Geoffroy

    Have they taken the aerators out of Lake LaVerne to allow skating again, or is that just for seasonal propaganda purposes?

    Either way, I enjoy seeing this done every year, and feel it is a nice gesture.

    It's pretty. Makes me miss Iowa and campus, especially since I won't be home for Christmas this year. Ditto the comments about ice skating.

    I'm more shocked the University would allow ice skating on a lake that isn't fully frozen. Imagine the liability.

    Call me old fashioned but I like the regular cards he used to send. You open it up and a life-size President Geofroy pops up.

    Re: Interactive greeting card from President Geoffroy

    I really liked the one from a couple years ago where they had the campanile version of "Bells of Iowa State" playing in the background.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    I am also nostalgic about my college campus experience. However, with so many students living off campus these days, I wondered if it might be changing. I don't find today's students nearly as caught up in the campus traditions as previous generations.

    I sure as hell am and I only left Ames in July. I miss that place daily.

    And if they are allowing people to ice skate on Lake Lavern, I'll be making a trip to Ames this month. That is something I always wanted to do.

    My dad is still sentimental about it here. There have been a couple of times that he has gone over to the campanielle just to hear the bells. I love it hear and will miss it dearly when I graduate.
