Inscription.  Just two years after the University's founding in 1893l the Oval was designed as the camps centerpiece. Crossing its lawn was discouraged until walkways were built with bricks that originally cobbled downtown streets. The walking mall's aid bears a seal with the school's motto,"Lux et Veritas"(Light and Truth), anchored by points honoring University scholars, presidents, distinguished alumni, honorary doctorates and the grizzly mascot.
