Large Format Outdoor Installation
The Webber Athletic Department, under the vision of Associate Athletic Director Steve Rassel, wanted to create an attractive first motivational impression as student athletes enter the main Field House and Strength and Conditioning Center. Director Rassel, in consulting with SunDance, decided to feature a large WARRIORS sign created from decals along the white fence running along the walkway into the Field House.
The most significant challenge facing the SunDance team was to manufacture and install a product that would remain for multiple years with minimal maintenance. A decision was made to produce the large letters on a 3M IJ40 Calendared Wall/Trailer Wrap and then seal the Letters with a weather resistant over laminate. The laminated Letters were then mounted on aluminum panels that were then installed along the fence.
About Webber International University
On April 6, 1927, Grace Knight and Roger W. Babson founded the University which was to carry the last name of their granddaughter, Camilla Grace Webber. Roger Babson was best known for his contributions in the areas of economics and finance, which included the establishments of Babson’s Reports and authorship of a number of business publications and books. Among his numerous philanthropic contributions were the establishment of several institutions of higher learning and service on a number of corporate boards, as well as the endowment of several charitable foundations.
Webber was originally established as a women’s college, with the exclusive purpose of teaching women about business. It was the first school chartered under the educational and charitable laws of the State of Florida as a non-profit organization. The University’s mission is to offer students an array of business, liberal arts and sciences, and pre-professional programs of study that create a life transforming educational opportunity which is practical in its application, global in its scope, and multi-disciplinary in its general education core. The University awards degrees at the bachelor and master levels at locations in Florida and North Carolina, as well as at the associate level in Florida.
