The Cube is a study building in the dead center of the Courtyard, and is intended as a study area for sea creatures. It is shaped like a cube and looks like a large sealed glass tank that extends into the ground. The water is pulled to the top of the tank via the power of cohesive bonds. The Cube was intended as a way for sea creatures to socialize with other, terrestrial students. Tubes from the Cube extend throughout the university and several open up near the Student Union for amphibious students. The inside of the Cube is bereft of furniture and instead houses one of the largest artificial coral reefs on the East Coast. The Cube has a dark past - originally, it was the target of protests and vandalism because it was believed that the Cube promoted 'interspecial mixing.' It is not uncommon to see sea creatures and terrestrial animals socializing through the glass.
