A Place to Honor Mizzou Traditions
Alumni Association breaks ground on Traditions Plaza.
For its latest project, the association broke ground in July on the northern half of Carnahan Quadrangle to create Traditions Plaza. The plaza will be a venue where the campus community can enjoy concerts, spirit rallies, outdoor classes and other activities. In addition to a stage with amphitheater seating for about 750, the association’s plan calls for tiles describing Mizzou traditions. These could include Homecoming, Greek Week, Savitar and Tap Day. Like Mizzou Legacy Walk, Traditions Plaza will be funded by alumni who purchase inscribed bricks that form parts of the hardscape.
“The success of our earlier projects showed us how much alumni like to leave their name on campus,” says David Roloff, BES ’78, MA ’85, who directs marketing and strategic communication at the association. “Traditions Plaza is where we will honor our pride of place on campus” and raise up to $3 million to preserve Mizzou traditions.
