What’s Testudo Doing Today?

Ever wonder what it would look like if Testudo could join you in your personal celebration of Smith Day? We do too, so here’s your chance!

Whether Testudo joins your Zoom meeting, goes to virtual class with you (or your kids), joins you on Mayer Mall at the Smith Day tent, or celebrates with you during a Smith Day activity, we want to see how you and Testudo celebrate the day.

Rub Testudo’s Nose

If you are not on campus on Tuesdays, you can still take part in this campus tradition. Before your big presentation or meeting, your online exam, or just for fun, stop by the virtual space to rub Testudo’s virtual nose.
