The Rock’s New Home

Unfortunately, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has not been hired as head of UJ campus security.

The Rock, formerly residing between Watson Hall and Sorkeness Center, has been moved!

Of course, this has re-ignited controversy about what to call the UJ landmark.

Provost Paul Olson recently tweeted:

“The Rock has a new home at @JimmieKnight. It looks great outside of Raugust Library. I plan to give it a new coat of paint soon if no one beats me to it.”

Quickly, the reply came: “Regardless of where it is, it will always be the “Nurses Rock”.”

Not being satisfied with the nursing department having the last word, the Provost suggested that perhaps it should now be called Library Rock.

Will this controversy ever be resolved? Will Student Senate take a vote? Will Dwayne Johnson get a say?
