Fountain and Reflecting Pool


The "pond" and water fountains, located in front of Thomas Cooper Library, were added during the construction of the ‘new’ Thomas Cooper Library in 1971. The landscape architect’s design for the area was nearly discarded in favor of a parking lot, but was approved in the end because engineers suggested that on hot days, cool water could be circulated through the building and hot air taken out through the fountains. The space now serves as a place for students to convene, relax, or study.
