October 17, 1986 - Stonehenge Dedicated
On the site of old Fieldhouse stands the Clarke Memorial Fountain, more commonly known as Stonehenge. It stands as a tribute to those men and women who served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and in times of peace. Each trilith stands facing one of the cardinal directions with a fountain between its two posts. The lintels have each war engraved into their front facing side. In the center of the memorial is another fountain atop a sphere representing the Earth. On Veterans Day, members from each of the ROTC branches stand watch by each post.
The fountain is occasionally dyed green for football games and many students have run through the fountain after a big win.

|Now that I know a bit more about it, I wish I'd have taken a closer look at the fountain last weekend. Although I was pretty amused when I referred to it as "that Stonehedge-looking thingy...what's it called?" and was informed that it was, in fact, called (unoffically) Stonehenge. Good times.|
