Frog Fountain is back!
Frog Fountain returned to its home in mid-December after an 18-month absence while the Campus Commons project sprung up around it. During its construction in 1969, the fountain was the subject of controversy. Built with funds donated by Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Phillips, it became the site of protests by students who wanted the money directed toward scholarships. The fountain won out, and today’s version with shiny copper (until the weather gets it) complements the spire and finial atop the emerging University Union.
