Class of 2005

In 2001, the eastern portion of the Carver/Music Hall plaza was completed and has already become a favorite space for students to gather in between classes. The Class of 2005 gift completed the plaza area, adding additional furnishings, bike parking, and landscaping, creating a wonderful gathering spot for Iowa State students for years to come.The concept for the Carver/Music Hall Plaza was originally developed in the late 1990s to improve the well-traveled and worn-out pedestrian connection between the Enrollment Services Center and central campus.

Class of 2006

In the fall of 2006, on the day before the annual in-state rivalry football game against the Hawkeyes, a small “Cyclone” traveled through campus and destroyed many trees of historical significance. In the weeks following the event, the grounds crew at Iowa State spent its time cleaning up and cutting down the trees. The wood was salvaged and dried. The Class of 2006 gift allowed many of those trees to be replaced, as well as pay for the recovered wood to be sculpted into podiums, tables, benches, and other items that were dispersed around campus. Each item tells campus visitors and future students the story of the day when the cyclone touched down on campus. Class gift plaques are affixed near each replanted tree and on the podiums, tables, benches, and other items made from the salvaged wood in order to inform passers-by of the gift.
