FAU to Celebrate ADT Clock at Stadium
BOCA RATON, Fla. (November 28, 2012) – Florida Atlantic University will host a ceremony in honor of the new ADT clock that has been installed at FAU Stadium on Saturday, December 1 at 2 p.m. at 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.

The ADT clock, which showcases the company’s support of its hometown university, was originally installed at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, during the famed ballpark’s 99th anniversary year.
The Owls football team kicks off against the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on December 1 at 3 p.m. ADT vice president of marketing Lewis Long will present FAU President Mary Jane Saunders with a check on the field during halftime.
