    Apr 23, 2014
    The Alma Mater returned to campus after spending more than 600 days in the Conservation of Sculpture & Objects Studio (CSOS) in Forest Park, IL. Prior to that trip, The Alma Mater had never left the Urbana campus. On April 8, 2014, the Alma Mater was lifted out of the CSOS, placed on a trailer, and stored in a secure facility overnight to prepare for transport back to campus. Once home to Alma Mater Plaza, reinstallation of the sculpture is anticipated to take approximately 2-4 hours.
