Memorial Student Center Plaza


On the campus side of the Memorial Student Center, the plaza is centered by a fountain designed by sculptor Harry Bertoia with 75 points at the top, each representing a life taken in the 1970 Marshall football plane crash. The plaza was renovated in 1999-2000 to add an amphitheatre and replace the cement floor with brick. In 2008, the fountain underwent extensive repairs and was given a new granite surface, a copper catch tray and a higher spray of water.
