Labyrinth offers place for contemplation

Proposed by Nicholas Pippins ’07 as part of an Odyssey project, the labyrinth recently completed near the southern border of the campus provides a quiet area for prayer or reflection. Adjacent to it, Hendrix plans to construct a columbarium, a structure of vaults lined with recesses for the respectful storage of urns. Hendrix is a leader in the national trend of providing a final resting place for alumni and friends, which was the focus of a May 18 New York Times article. Hendrix’s planned columbarium is also highlighted on page 26 of the October edition of Reader’s Digest under the heading: “Be a Big Man on Campus – Forever.”
