Yup. Same here. And seeing ODU's brand across DC Metro makes me happy on an almost daily basis.

Had my "Old Dominion Monarchs" hat on and this young guy, could have been a manager-in-training type employee, walked up to me and asked "Where is Old Dominion located?" After I said Norfolk, Virginia, he came back with "Oh, I see a number of trucks with the name Old Dominion written on them all over - ". I immediately interjected, didn't allow him to finish his statement, by suggesting he may be referring to a different entity, a Freight Line with same name. Much to my surprise, he quickly re-asserted himself by saying, "Yes, of course, I knew that. Old Dominion does very well in basketball and has been making waves after recently starting Div. 1 Football. Academics are very good as well."

Granting he may not have known the difference between ODU and the Freight Line, it felt good to hear those comments about ODU coming from a State of Washington resident, so I complemented him on his knowledge of national college sports and went on to devour my lunch.

Were you there for the Tulips festival? We returned from Seattle last week from a vacation too and had a similar encounter on the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry with a dude who recognized ODU logo on my T-shirt and started talking about our Basketball program and he was not aware of the fact that we now have FB program playing in FBS. He seemed and had mostly nice things to say about ODU. Man i could see why Washington Huskies love to Boatgate. Campus was nice and had tons of waterfront real estate. Would love for us to have the ability to boatgate sometime in the future.

I knew about the Tulips Festival, but only had time for Snoqualmie Falls, Museum of Flight at Boeing's Seattle Facility, Microsoft Campus, and a few other Waterfront attractions.

The event seemed to be a big hit with the companies that were there. I can see this becoming a much bigger thing in the future. The Dean also passed out "ODU ENGINEERING ALUMNI" car stickers to help advertise the program.

Hey, uh, any idea where a fella could grab one of these ODU engineering alumni car decals???

If you want an ODU Engineering Alumni Sticker email:

Sarah Martin Lampert
sfmartin@odu.edu

She said it was okay for me to post her info here. The idea is to get as many Engineering Almuni rocking these stickers as they can. Keep an eye out at the Book store too. There may be ODU Engineering specific gear showing up down the road. She may be able to tell you more if you ask.

I was given 3 more today when I and a few other groups presented our projects to the Dean and the Advisory council. Know any Engineering Alum local to Norfolk that want a sticker?

Stopped into a team sports apparel store last night in Tysons Corner mall. I noticed the black and gold shirt at first but was relieved to see the ODU shirt next to it.

I guess we have to buy stuff when we see it to encourage stores to carry more. I would much prefer to buy a Nike Monarch Nation shirt like the R.N. shirt next to it in the photo though.

What does this decal look like? I already have three pieces of ODU swag on my Jeep (state logo on my hard top back window, an alumni license plate frame, and one of those WRV logos in blue with our crown on it) but would love one to put on my hard hat or work computer or something like that

I guess I should have posted pics of the sticker. I'm traveling now so it will have to wait.
