Narrative:
This fountain was given to the college on the 75th anniversary of Alpha Delta Pi, founded at Wesleyan College in 1851. Today it is a primary gathering and meeting place for students. Its location in the heart of the dormitory complex adds to the beauty of the quadrangle surrounding it. Students relax and study there. Visitors photograph it constantly.
