University of Richmond visitors entering from Campus Drive can’t help but notice the latest landmark. A 40-foot, red and white Spider logo now appears in the intersection next to the Robins School of Business.

“­It was a team effort,” said Bill Quig, the project manager behind the new addition. “Having Spiders on the roads to greet every person that comes on campus instills a huge sense of pride. I’m grateful to everyone who helped make it happen.”

“We are always looking for new and unexpected ways to add Spider spirit to our campus through environmental graphics,” said Sam Tannich, senior director of creative services at the University of Richmond. “Adding the Spider to our roads in key locations is a great extention of our existing system. Keep your eyes open for more to come!”
