The area located in front of Millican Hall (Administration Building) is called the Alumni Plaza. This area was built between March and May of 1989 and is “a showcase area for those alumni who have donated $1,000 or more to the Alumni Trust Fund,” according to a March 16th 1989 article in the FuTUre. The brick wall is able to house up to 1,000 personalized bricks that represent each donor and is also equipped with a landscape shrubbery, flower beds, and a center sitting area. At the Alumni Plaza’s inception, donations have added up to 250 bricks.
On Friday, November 13th 2009, President Millican’s statue was unveiled, with his arms outstretched towards the administration building to honor what he had done for the university, i.e. building it from the ground up. Also located in the alumni plaza is the 1976 time capsule which is to be opened in 2026.
