On Friday, April 1st, Reddit user u/yikesxX1000 posted a pixel-art design of the Stony Brook University logo of a shield onto r/SBU, asking for other students to add the logo on r/place. As a result of this, several SBU students began to form the first version of the logo, located at (277, 136); next to Homestuck and the Nordic Union. At the same time, the Discord server for ANYI was formed, but it was exclusively for only SBU students.
