    Well, UC Santa Cruz is located on a hilltop in a redwood forest...it has a lot of banana slugs !

    In the Tarantino film Pulp Fiction, there's a scene where John Travolta wears a UCSC banana slug t-shirt.  The shirt looks something like this:

    The actual motto of the university is "Fiat Lux"...not exactly original.  In this t-shirt the motto is changed to "Fiat Slug".
