    Class of 1957 Promenade

    We are honored that the Class of 1957 targeted their 50th Reunion gift for the W.E.B. Du Bois Library promenade. Thousands of students pass this prominent campus location every day. Over $180,000 was raised, which will be used to create an endowment for the continued beautification and maintenance of this crossroads in the heart of campus.

    Thanks to ’57, the planters are filled throughout the year with trees and shrubs, and with beautiful flowers from spring to fall. The students love the benches for socializing, studying, and enjoying the view.
