Note: The author of the photo used to illustrate this post describes the significance of the image here (quoted below).

“”Campus Challenge 2007” photo. Hooked onto the Science/Nursing building, the Education building is also one of BSU’s elder buildings. This photo is really kinda important to me because it captures my thoughts as to what education is often constructed to “mean.” Note the uniformity of the brick and the professional nature of the font used. Almost as if “education” is distributed in neat even blocks. Or worst yet, the recipients of education are representational of those blocks. Does a certain Pink Floyd song come to mind for anyone else? Cliché, but true all the same…”
