Ohio University Alumini Gate   Save
Ohio Guide Photographs
Description: The inscription above the gate reads: "So enter that daily thou mayest grow in knowledge wisdom and love." This gate is at the intersection of Court and Union Streets in Athens, Ohio. It is the Alumni Gift of the Class of 1915, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first graduation class from Ohio University. This was also the first graduation of the old Northwest Territory. This quotation greeting those entering the campus was taken from a Latin inscription over the main portal of the University of Padua, Italy. The quotation for those departing the campus is "So depart that thou mayest better serve thy fellowmen thy country and thy God." It was also taken form the same source. This gate is where Ohio University and the City of Athens meet. View on Ohio Memory.
