But years of constant use coupled with the effects of the harsh New England weather took its toll on the Plaza. The bluestone installed nearly five decades ago was cracked and crumbled, and rust stains had colored the pedestal of "Free at Last," the soaring sculpture erected in memory of Dr. King in 1975.

The class of '94 took the first step to restore the physical condition of the Plaza, designating its class gift to the project. Recently, more alumni joined the cause, and a concerted effort has been completed to revitalize the heart of our University. Together we have met the challenge of this more than one million dollar project, giving Marsh Plaza a dramatic new look and preserving it as a crossroads and meeting place for generations to come.
