100th Anniversary of Memorable Class Gift

2015 marks both the anniversary of a devastating fire that destroyed half of campus as well as the graduating class that rose from its ashes. In memory of all things lost March 6, 1915 - the buildings, official documents, student records and awards - that year's graduating class proposed to utilize the cornerstone of Old Main as the base for one of the masonry pillars guarding the north entrance of campus. Standing tall today, the pillars remain a strong part of the university’s history, reminding the Class of 2015 of its historic past.
