We could only imagine what an Alaska Airlines plane with Spartan colors would look like. Then @squinte6 created this photo illustration, helping us and many others visualize it! Join the conversation using #SJSUAir, and let Alaska Airlines (@AlaskaAir) know that #SJSU wants a #SJSUAir plane for San Jose International Airport (@FlySJC)!

We’ve put together the tweets of the week for Spartans to see the exciting, funny, interesting, and spontaneous conversations on Twitter about SJSU. Take a look at what’s happening on campus by exploring the tweets below!
