Alma Mater

Alma Mater sits proudly in front of Low Library and was sculpted by Daniel Chester French, a renowned sculptor best known for the statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial. A "sister sculpture" modeled after Columbia's version sits at the University of Havana in Cuba. Legend has it that the first-year student who first locates the "hidden owl" will become the class valedictorian!
