Old Graduate College 2
Looking east from Wyman Gardens, which are adjacent to the New Graduate College, the visitor has an interesting view of Procter Hall flanked by two smaller octagonal towers and Cleveland Tower in the background. The western façade of Procter Hall boasts the great Liberal Arts Window. ~ * ~ On closer inspection of the gable, one can see two tigers rampant framing a shield. This relief has become the logo for the 2000-2001 Centennial Anniversary of the Graduate School which will be celebrated with many events and the release of a compact disc featuring a concert in Procter Hall.
Wyman House, the Dean's official residence, is now used for University functions, receptions, and retreats.
With the help of binoculars or a telephoto lens one can catch a glimpse of the top of the octagonal towers at the west corners of Procter Hall and discover the tigers that keeps watch over the Graduate College. ~ * ~ Stepping back to get a good look at the southern wall of Procter Hall, the architectural richness of Cram's vision for the Graduate College comes into focus once more with its buttresses, finials, grotesques, and a full-height oriel.
