Spring is in full bloom here at Embry-Riddle Prescott! Even though we’re still seeing a little bit of rain, overcast skies, and even some sleet, springtime is definitely here. With Preview Day just passed and Parent’s Weekend right around the corner, vibrant colors and (mostly) sunny days couldn’t have come at a better time! Here’s an inside look at our campus in full motion during the start of spring.
Earhart’s Dining Hall
Hall 5 of the Mingus Complex, and our dining hall (a bit blocked behind the tree)
Waiting for the annual Easter egg hunt to begin! (Outside of the Student Union, in the quad)
Walking out of the dining hall, with a slight view of the AXFAB, or Aerospace Experimentation and Fabrication Building (our central engineering building on campus)
The Entrance to our AXFAB engineering building
Some sidewalk art our sororities and fraternities created outside of the Student Union!
And lastly, the Hazy Library and student quad…
Some of the cool facilities that we have here are some that you might be quite interesting like the Hazy Library. The Hazy library was built with funds that were donated to the University by the Hazy family, with these funds we were able to build an awesome learning center that has two floors and several rooms dedicated to studying.
The top floor of the library houses the second half of what we call the Kalusa collection, it has 6000 model airplanes that John Kalusa started building in 1937. They were donated to the University upon his death in 2003, and the first half of the collection can be seen immediately upon entering the library.The collection has actually achieved the recognition of a Guinness World Record.

Another cool part of the library is that all printing form the 44 computers is free, there are 10 rooms in which you may study or practice presentations, and the library is connected with the other libraries in the county so if you need a book that is not in the ERAU library we can have it transferred to us from another library.
There are so many other interesting facts about the Hazy Library and the other facilities we have on our campus, if you would like to know more I highly encourage you to stop on by some time and/or ask me some questions!!!
