The Restoration of Old Main's Flagpole
Old Main's original flagpole was put atop the building in 1935. When Old Main was restored in the 1980s, the unstable flagpole was removed. A funding campaign for a new flagpole was launched in 2002 and on May 22 of that year a ceremonial flag raising was conducted by the ROTC Colorguard in time for Memorial Day. Many individuals and campus committees, including Staff Council, raised the $15,000 needed for renovation of the steeple and to purchase the 24-hour-lit flagpole.
