Students are buzzing about the announcement of the Alma Mater’s return to her now empty post next to Altgeld.

She is scheduled to return in April.

Nina Nguyen, junior in molecular and cellular biology, identifies the statue with one thing: her greenish color.

“The green color of the Alma Mater has been everywhere on our campus; it’s on our planners. We all got used to the color.”

TRACK 2

Changing her appearance back to bronze changes the connection some have with her.

The Black Sheep decided to poke fun at students’ disgruntlement.

Chris Bourg, Master’s in accounting science student wrote the article.

“I’m just lampooning on that because what they don’t like is what the statue is supposed to look like — the bronze color it has now.

TRACK 3

To students like Nguyen, the greenish color represents beauty and pride.

Christian Ray, director of general chemistry, points out that the greenish color actually represents deterioration from rust.

“By turning blue essentially, she was rusting to pieces. Any time you have a bronze statute, it’s going to be that color.”

TRACK 4

In favor of the new color or not, spring graduates are just relieved to have the Alma Mater back. FOR OFF THE SHELF AND ONLINE, I’M REBECCA JACOBS.
