I have thoroughly enjoyed this project because the experience has definitely left me with more reasons to be a proud Bearkat. A rich heritage one should embrace. Also, my research project has given me a platform, as an artist and lover of history, to showcase some of the many wonderful hidden treasures which make Sam Houston State University and Museum complex one of the best Centers for Higher Education. As a student, I am like many of the faculty. We are all busy running from place to place on campus, never taking time to “smell the roses.” I hope I have given you a reason to slow down and appreciate our campus surroundings. My blog features my works, ideas and studies as an artist and can be found at lgrawlbotanicalstudy.blogspot.com.
