UCSD’s Geisel, Inception, and Studying for Finals at the Snow Fortress   13 comments


Hey, fellow UCSD students– Seen Inception? There’s mild spoilers ahead if you haven’t. Here’s the main one:

Yep, they used our Geisel Library “know fortress” as a model for a snow fortress! And they added a guard tower to it, which I can only imagine encases new overpriced transfer student housing.

Here’s the real Geisel before it was a snow fortress in Inception.

Comparing our beloved library to the first photo, the following are undeniable:

  • You’ll be hearing freshmen squeal in excitement as they declare “To the snow fortress!” to study for their first DOC, HILD, and Math20A midterms.
  • When Geisel gets a little nippy in December (and Inception comes out on DVD/BluRay), Thermos of hot cocoa in tow: It’s like a snow fortress in here!
  • The snow fortress scaffolds the third level of the Inception team’s dreams– what’s on the third level of Geisel? It’s all but a dream.
  • If Ellen Page, the “architect”, didn’t mind plagiarizing from Geisel, you shouldn’t worry about using Geisel to plagiarize either.
  • Inconvenient truth: Once upon a dream, San Diego was an icy snowscape before global warming. Don’t be surprised if the already rabid green initiative on campus uses the snow fortress photos as a rallying point.
  • The last time Geisel was discussed at length on the internet was in February because of the innocently-left behind “noose” incident. This is a pleasant change of case…but just in case Dom Cobb planted the idea in her head ala “Inception”–
  • Hey Leo: Real pain, real action!

Geisel Library and "Inception's" Snow Fortress are both based on UCSD's logo.
