Long Description:

As part of the redevelopment of the Woods Hall Campus Union, later renamed the Richard B. Flynn Campus Union, a sundial was installed next to the building on a terrace overlooking Watershops Pond. A 8' circular red granite base is inscribed with the College's motto: SPIRIT MIND BODY. The sundial is a matching 5' diameter by 6" high granite cylinder with an aluminum gnomon that cast its shadow onto a dial that has embedded squares with raised aluminum Arabic numbers. Lines drawn down from the base of the numbers are angled to match the angle of the sun's shadow.

Sundial Type: Horizontal - Flat base, Ground or Pedestal mounted dial plate
