On the patio outside of the north end of the Daniel Library is a statue of Athena. She is the goddess of wisdom, warfare, and the arts. The statue was a gift of the Class of 1960.
Athena was the Greek goddess of wisdom, warfare and the arts. She was called Minerva by the Romans. She is seated in an arch with her legs to her left. Her left knee is higher than her right. The shield is behind her left knee. In the middle of the shield is a six-petaled flower. Her left arm is resting on top of her shield. Her helmet is at her right hip with her right hand resting on top of it. She is dressed in a traditional white silky robe drawn with a string at the waist and the shoulders. (Source: J.K.
