It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nope, it’s just Major-General Sir Isaac Brock pulling onto our campus after a long journey home!
For all of you future Badgers out there who don’t know who the General is or why his arrival is so important to the Brock community, listen up!
Sir Isaac Brock was a General in the War of 1812 and died heroically at the Battle of Queenston Heights. Although he is not with us anymore, he will forever be with us in our Badger pride and spirit. Not only is our beautiful university named after him, but he will soon become a prominent part of the campus, all thanks to Canadian sculptor Danek Mozdzenski. The commemorative statue is expected to arrive on Monday, March 16th, 2015 and will sit proudly in its new permanent home on the grass strip at the base of the Arthur Schmon Tower. We encourage everyone to come out and celebrate! So gear up in all of your best red clothing and be prepared to cheer – don’t forget your signs and noisemakers! The party will begin at 10:00 on Monday morning and the first 150 people to show up will receive a free t-shirt. There will be face panting, refreshments and good times to be had by all!
