The Class of 1939 Water Sculpture on Purdue Mall and the Purdue Bell Tower will be lit in red, yellow and black for the next week as a tribute to those who have been affected by Tuesday’s (March 22) terrorist attacks in Brussels, as well as other such attacks around the world. The water sculpture and tower will remain lit during evening and nighttime hours during the weeklong period.
In November, due to a suggestion from a student, both campus icons were lit in blue, white and red as a tribute to those affected by the Paris terrorist attacks.
