The Final Four has everyone buzzing — including Florida Atlantic University alumni.

Aryeh Lehrer, who graduated in 2003, said the success of the men's basketball team mimics the school.

"The arc of this team and the arc of the university's growth mirror each other, and it is fantastic to see," Lehrer said.

Brian Oliver is from the FAU class of 1998.

"[I am a] South Florida native, but mom kicked me out of the house and said, 'You have to live on campus to get the whole college experience,'" Oliver said. "I was here when it was 'Find Another University,' when it was 'FA-who?' We tried so hard to get on the map to get recognized."

Academically and athletically, everyone knows exactly where FAU is now. The Owl Nation has never flown higher.
