Friday Fountain Break! Most colleges have some fountains. Most of these fountains have at one time or another been sudsy and frothy because some students put Tide in them. But I digress, as I am sure this has never happened at Yale.
This fountain was designed by Maya Lin, the architect who designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Mall in Washington DC and who was an undergraduate at Yale. The Yale fountain is called The Women's Table and commemorates the story of women at the college. You can read about that here. It stands just outside the front doors to the gorgeous Stirling Library.
The Women's Table is a truly stunning fountain - if you find yourself in New Haven, stop by and see it.
