A Reason to Celebrate: Bringing Isaac Back!

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!

About Adrienne

Hello prospective, new and returning Badgers! My name is Adrienne and I am super excited to be back at Brock again for my fourth year of the BA/BEd Concurrent Education (Intermediate/Senior) program. I’m majoring in English as my first teachable, and minoring in History, which means I spend lots of time reading! I love working with children and interacting with the Brock community and would be happy to help other students with similar interests to get involved as well. Please take a few minutes to browse my blog and feel free to ask questions. Enjoy!
