At Radford University, SPS students have bonded over an old log—yes, a real wood log—that was being discarded. After an SPS member rescued the log, the chapter rightfully recognized them as a new buddy, Natural Log. Natural Log has strong arms and a great smile to greet everyone in a friendly manner. Their googly eyes take in everything, including mistakes in the students’ derivations on the whiteboard
Dinosaurs are an important part of the annual Science Festival organized by the Randolph College SPS chapter. Harriet, a seven-foot-tall metal T-rex donated by a supportive alumna’s family, is guardian of the chapter’s observatory deck, patiently watching over the student parking lot. Harriet has helped chapter members bond and brings joy to the campus and local community. She occasionally makes appearances on social media, and locals even bring their kids by for a visit. She even dressed up as a mummy on Halloween! Photo courtesy of Peter Sheldon.
