Anteater Tower, the signature piece of UC Irvine’s new Student Center, was adorned Aug. 30 with a nine-foot long bronze sculpture of the campus’s beloved mascot. The sculpture overlooks West Peltason and Pereira Drives and resembles the 3-dimensional Anteater in front of the Bren Events Center. At night the sculpture will be lit and visible from a distance. A 13-foot companion sculpture (pictured) also was installed on a second tower overlooking the Student Center terrace and Ring Mall. A grand reopening celebration for the Student Center is scheduled for Oct. 24-26.
