Light The Fountain 2019

UNA Traditions: Light The Fountain

Check out our UNA Traditions and stay up to date!

Light the Fountain has been postponed to the rain date, March 17.

UNA Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Kimberly A. Greenway
"The Light the Fountain event is a University tradition that began in the spring of 2016 after President Kitts awakened to the lights the previous spring and had the idea that students could enjoy what he awakened to that morning.  The event provides students the opportunity to engage with one another and the campus community in this shared experience, and to appreciate the symbolic representation of the campus “coming alive” with spring weather and the second half of the spring academic term.  Students and guests witness the lighting of the fountain and the first seasonal flow of its water while enjoying food, fun, and entertainment.  The event further emphasizes the beauty of UNA’s campus, the generosity of donors, and the enjoyment of being together at UNA."
-- Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Kimberly A. Greenway
