All of the lights

Sather gate lightsIt’s Big Game Week. The football face-off with our friendly foes doesn’t take place until Saturday, but that doesn’t mean that Cal can’t start getting its spirit on a little early. And so we couldn’t be more thrilled to see the lovely light display that now decorates our quaint little campus [1] — the copious amount of blue and gold just warms our hearts.

Okay, okay, maybe that’s a bit too much, but we really love those twinkle lights, so sue us! Really though, the lights are positively charming.

Wheeler Hall is looking mighty fine with school colors illuminating its South entrance — don’t columns always appear more majestic when they shine brightly with California pride? We certainly think so. The colors give the classical style a refreshing twist. Very groovy-chic!

That tall gorgeous tower is an icon all on its own, so just imagine how cool it looks when quintessential Cal symbols cover its majestic walls — now stop imagining and go check it out for yourself! In the darkness (and boy does it get dark early, nowadays), you can hardly see the tower itself, but the image of a Golden Bear is clear as a whistle.

Oh yes, this is the time of year when the campus looks its absolute best, so keep an eye out for more spirited decorations and related events as the week progresses [2]. It’s time to show the Cardinal who’s the boss of the Bay, so whether or not we reclaim the axe, we can hold our heads high and know that we’ve got a kick-ass campus.

Go Bears!
