Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

This week’s challenge is all about being connected.  Shoes off and safely slung between two trees, a student takes advantage of a warm, sunny afternoon in a campus green belt to keep connected via cell phone.

It’s so good to see our campus hawk cruising the thermals during a lunchtime photo safari.

Safety First II

The  University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s urban campus  offers terrific people watching as students and faculty cross tree-lined brick paths en route to the next class or the library or something sushi or Taco Bell-ish at the student union. The campus is in something of a tough, but improving, neighborhood. Being aware of your surroundings is always a good idea.

Campus police maintain visibility and call boxes are located across campus, all for safety’s sake. But sometimes, things just don’t work.
