Bob commented: “Our family is immensely pleased to make this gift to Capital. We hope that this great fountain will be used by the campus and the broader community, serving as a wonderful and lasting intersection for ideas, conversation, and good times. Reflections surpasses Missy’s and my dream of what we wanted to do.”The design, by MSI Architects, created a walkway through the middle of the fountain, allowing waters to be surrounded by the beauty and soothing sound of cascading water — without getting wet. Development of the fountain was led by Messer Construction and numerous subcontractors.The Class of ’55 committed funds from their reunion gift fund toward the construction. Other donor recognition opportunities exist at Reflections; trees and benches, for instance, make ideal memorial gifts. There are study areas at each end of the fountain, complete with tables and chairs. In the short time Reflections operated this fall, it became clear that this new landmark would be very popular with students, staff and faculty. It was common to see seven or eight students studying around the water and classes being held at the small tables. President Denvy Bowman said, “This centerpiece of Capital University will be a place where our students will think, have fun, and ponder their future. That personal dialogue is the essence of a Capital education. We are immensely pleased that Bob and Missy Weiler’s generosity found such a lovely expression.”To learn more about ways to make memorial gifts for Reflections, call 1-866-704-0742 or e-mail email@example.com.
