Photographer's Note

Everybody always seems to take this picture from the front. I thought a shot from the back was differernt and still made a cool picture.

The women in front of these two man (learning and labor) is the Alma Mater.

The Alma Mater statue displays the University’s motto of learning and labor in this statue. Learning and labor are depicted as twin figures between a woman in scholastic robes (the person in this picture). Above its base these words are engraved into the granite: To thy happy children of the future, those of the past send greetings, and Her children arise up and call her Blessed. Proverbs 31-28.
