A large NOLA sign adorns the grass in front of Flower Hall on the uptown campus. The sign is attached to a capstone design class in the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. The course provides social innovation and social entrepreneurship (SISE) minors an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to the planning, development and execution of a community-based project. The sculpture was a prototype for a permanent sign that has since been erected near the Merryl and Sam Israel Jr. Environmental Sciences Building.
