The fountain pictured was designed by WPA artist Emory Kopta in 1933 and built in stages during the mid- to late-1930s. The original design featured a full size flute player, which was reproduced in cement rather than bronze due to a lack of funds. The artist destroyed it. In 1970 a small clay model was bronzed and is now housed in the University Archives at Hayden Library.

The sundial to the left in the photograph was donated to the school by the class of 1915.
