MSU Re-dedicates Fountain on Founders Day - 10/06/2014

Minnesota State Mankato re-dedicated the fountain on its campus mall during the university's fourth annual Founders Day celebration on Monday, Oct. 6. This year the university is celebrating the 146th year of its founding in 1868.

During the ceremony, the Maverick Athletic Band performed, cake was served and Minnesota State Mankato Vice President of University Advancement R. Kent Clark and Minnesota State Student Association President Mariah Haffield spoke.

The campus fountain re-opened in August after undergoing maintenance work during the previous academic year. The fountain was installed in 1969 and designed to create a spiral effect with stationary water jets. Its design came from part of the New York City World Fair in 1965. The sculpture, by Roger Johnson, a former faculty member in the art department, was not originally part of the work and was added in 1975.
