Transcript Mmm, peanuts! A squirrel enjoys a handout from a passerby. Students enjoyed the opportunities to feed the squirrels, all the while wondering: do they ever eat, like, acorns and stuff? Photo by Kena Alvarado Just chillin, This squirrel sits on a bench — almost like a human! The squirrels often used different facilities on campus which were built for thei human occupants. Photo by Kena Alvarado Peek-a-boo! A squirrel looks out from its vantage point in a tree. The squirrels were not shy, and often stared down the students who watched them go about their lives. Photo by Kena Alvarado Hanging around A squirrel pauses as it plays in a tree.

Photo by Kena Alvarado they could get their paws on. "They really like Corn Nuts," said sophomore music major Jennifer Welch. "Once a couple of squirrels raided a bag I had sitting next to me." These fearless creatures were sometimes an annoyance, but they were a fixture of the University scenery, and the campus would not have been the same without them. Story by Ashley Grubbs verywhere!
