A birdbath that was originally a gift to the university from the class of 1903 has been refurbished and placed near Lippincott Hall. A dedication ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. April 14. The restoration was financed by the Historic Mount Oread Fund and Jayhawk Audobon Society. "Class of 1903" is engraved on the rim, and a poem written by Stanley Lombardo, professor of classics, is engraved on a plaque at the base of the birdbath. The gift's original stone was refurbished and a new base was designed for the birdbath.
