Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Yeah, well, we actually have something that's original to our campus and our campus on Lee. You will never find it on anything else or any other campus in America. We actually have this thing called Cypress Lake, and that's what's behind me here. This is a giant lake in the center of campus where the biology students do a lot of research. We actually have a giant snapping turtle in the bottom. The engineering students in the middle of the summer and sometimes the fall semester will actually build canoes out of cement and race them through the centre of the swamp. Every fall we host this giant crawfish festival, where they have about twenty thousand pounds of crawfish, and it's hosted right here next to Cyprus Lake. This is what draws most people to our campus, even if they're not originally going to come here. We have a lot of kids that come by just to look at the alligators and everything, but they are very docile, like, right now, I'm actually standing on top of a great. A lot of people will actually come and just, like, examine the alligators. Look att them whenever it floods they actually, sometimes they. When the water rises, you can actually see the alligators. We do have, like, a giant wall around, so it's very, very, very safe. Um, and the alligators don't really harm anybody. We've never really had any accounts of anyone ever getting hurt by them. A lot of the events that we have either take place here or at the student union, which Cypress Lake is connected to its right over there. This is just one of the biggest things on campus. This is something that we are proud of here at UL..
