"When our committee began working on our campaign, it was the fall of 2012 ... we knew that whatever our gift would be, it would need to make a statement. We all immediately fell in love with the idea of the 'We Are' sculpture. At a time when so many people were eager to tell us who we were, it was important to remind the world of who 'We Are.'
"We are rooted in tradition and pride; We are built on love and loyalty; We are firm believers in success with honor. We are all this and more, because we are Penn State. And we are Penn State forever."
--Morgan Delaware, Penn State College of Communications alumna, associate director of development for the Schreyer Honors College, and class gift committee chair, at the Oct. 2 dedication of the 'We Are' Sculpture, the gift of the class of 2013.
