Four bird sculptures attached to the side of Todd Hall, flying up.
The accompanying plaque reads, ""Ascent pays homage to learning and the wondrous awakening that is the result of an opened mind. The University is a nest, a safe place to discover, to question, to think for oneself, developing independence and finally soaring. The birds are a metaphor for personal growth and transformation. The individual elements are placed in the dynamic motion of flight to pull the eye upward, finally to the sky, suggesting endless possibility.""
