Space Invaders Take Aim: Welcome, Class of 2015!

By Alice Bampton

“Incoming!” Space Invaders populate the large cultural windows near Falvey’s first floor entrance.

“May our Force be with you.” The display features University Librarian Joe Lucia, the research consultation librarians, subject librarians, resource management librarians and the University archivist, who, with other librarians and staff members, make Falvey a rich and powerful resource for students.

Design Specialist Joanne Quinn used icons derived from the classic Space Invaders arcade game and adapted the well-known expression, “May the force be with you,” from Star Wars films to create a colorful science-fiction-themed window.

Bright blue star-studded balloons and a blue net base contrast with the eye-catching yellow “2015” and space invaders, background hangings and the large Welcome Class of 2015 banner to create a forceful introduction to this year’s first year students.

Welcome to the Class of 2015 from Falvey Memorial Library!

    I just can’t get enough of Space Invaders. I had a massive plan when we were awaiting the birth of our 1st child, that if it was a boy, I’d get some massive space invader transfers for the nursery.

    Much to my wife’s joy, we had a girl and spotty bunting became abundant!
