Interesting things your school is known for
I was thinking about the Charlotte/USM fans talking about the beers their schools brew. Whats something different that your school does? At MTSU we have a large dairy operation and you can purchase chocolate milk. They show up to our local market and sell it.

In all seriousness, aside from famous athletes, TV personalities, and tragedy, our Forensic Science grad program is ranked #1 in the nation.

RE: Interesting things your school is known for
Well other than being associated with the region of Virginia (Old Dominion) and a trucking company 03-drunk ODU is known for VMASC (Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center) as a top 5 facility in the states and may be the World. We are also the first university to start a brand new school(unlike many schools that have programs offering courses) for cybersecurity for research and interdisciplinary education funded in part by NSA, DISA/CISA. The vision is to bring real world cyber threats, tor data, black domains/sources into emulation and then deriving solutions that can be modeled, simulated and implemented in the defense sector as well as real world enterprises. The combination of VMASC and ODU SCS will be one of a kind in the world when all is said and done.

FAU still has, on its grounds, a Burrowing Owl sanctuary. In fact, the University had been built in the area well known for many owl burrows. And it is these birds that gave our school's sports teams their name

Tech has one of top Aviation Programs in the country. It was ranked #2 behind US Military Academy and ahead of Embry Riddle my junior year.

We also produce a lot of Country Musicians- Merle Kilgore, Kix Brooks and Trace Adkins to name a few. Lainey Wilson didn't go to Tech but her parents did and her sister did too.

I think it's also fair to say that LA Tech is known for football & TV legend Terry Bradshaw, basketball legend Karl Malone, Phil "Duck Dynasty" Robertson and its' Cyber Engineering Program.

Not sure if this is unique but our founder, Bonnie Cone, is buried on campus in the Van Landingham Glen.

We also have another on campus cemetery. There's 2 plots of unmarked graves on either side of our baseball stadium entrance where the Mecklenburg Indigent Persons Home used to bury the folks that died there.

Hot women, really great parties/tailgates, Vince McMahon, & Sandra Bullock.

Also a good medical school, nursing school, school of education, etc.

But mostly hot women, lots of booze, and the best BBQ in the world.

I always say that if you can't get laid in 1 day at ECU you might not be alive, and even that isn't much of a detriment to your chances.
