Miscellaneous Landmarks

Alumni Arch: A window of cathedral glass inside the foyer of Pearsons Hall. It was made by Professor Emeritus of Art Frank Boggs and O.V. Shaffer'50.

bell: The bell at the south archway of Morse-Ingersoll Hall originally hung in the cupola of Middle College. This particular bell was not the original College bell, however. The original was cracked and recast in 1880. This later version was hung in its current location, courtesy of the class of 1950.

M-I fountain: A drinking fountain on Morse-Ingersoll Hall's inner court was given anonymously in memory of Loyll Emanuel Plinske'40, one of Beloit's greatest athletes and a campus leader who was killed in a training plane crash in 1941.

stone: Officially titled Rostra Beloitensia, this 8-ton boulder was brought to campus by members of the class of 1906 from its original resting place on a farm south of town. The boulder, located behind Eaton Chapel along the walkway between Middle College and Campbell Hall, became the rostrum for outdoor speaking during bonfires and other college events.

stone bench: A gift from the class of 1908 made of New Bedford limestone. It is located on the north side of Eaton Chapel and is able to seat more than 40 people. The class intended to start a college tradition that seniors have exclusive use of the bench.

victory fountain: A gift from the class of 1919 to celebrate victory in World War I. Just a few steps to the northeast of Middle College.
