On October 8, 1909, a powerful earthquake struck northern Croatia, near Zagreb. This event was studied by the famous Croatian seismologist Andrija Mohorovičić who concluded that the earth consists of surface layers above an internal core. To honor his work, the boundary between the crust and the mantle was named the Mohorovičić Discontinuity (or Moho). The SFA geology department will celebrate the 100th anniversary of this event by hosting SFA geophysicist Dr. Wesley A. Brown presentation entitled “A Century of Seismology” at noon Friday, March 12, in the Miller Science Building, Room 335. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on seismological demonstration, which guests will be allowed to handle various equipment used by seismologists.

The Department of Agriculture floriculture program is hosting a fundraiser for the Lauren Alston Memorial Scholarship Endowment by selling bud vases with a variety of beautiful flowers. Friends and family of Alston are helping to establish an endowed scholarship to memorialize her life and the tragic day she passed away. She was an SFA student who died last weekend in an ATV accident. Your purchase of our beautifully arranged bud vases will help contribute to the memorial fund. A minimum donation of $7.50 is requested. The flowers will be on sale from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, March 12, at the Agriculture Building, Room 118. For more information, please contact the agriculture department at (936) 468-3705. Read more about Alston in today's edition of "The Pine Log."

SFA's Vista

The Vista is one of the original elements of the campus, laid out as the Austin Building was being built. It served the college as a location for graduation ceremonies, State Board of Regents banquets and as the site for the conferring of SFA's first honorary doctor’s degree in the 1940s.

Weather was always a factor in scheduling activities on the Vista; Steen’s inauguration, scheduled for the Vista, had to be moved to the new Shelton Gym.

Steen built the first phase of the University center in 1964. It was not, however, until the expansion of the UC in the late 1960s that the original Vista walk fell victim to the expansions of the Steen years.

The destruction of the Vista triggered great dismay in those interested in the traditions of the college and also to conservationists who wanted to preserve the wooded area at the entrance of the campus. This triggered a defeat for Steen’s idea to place the library out in the trees in the coming years; what became Steen Library marked a shift of the campus to the east.

[At that time the Vista was paved, the entrance of the campus off North Street was changed. The street running in front of the Austin (Old Main) and Rusk Buildings, from the entrance near the Fine Arts Building to the Stone Fort, was known as “Main Street” or "Campus Drive" in the old days.]
