The Alumni Carillon and Clock Tower was a gift from State alumni to honor the school's
centennial in 1991.
The design proposed to alumni was for a tower approximately 34 feet tall and 54
feet wide with four clocks and an automatic carillon. It would have a steel frame skeleton,
continuous reinforced concrete block, with a 2 or 4 inch marble, granite, or limestone veneer.
Two memorial walls would contain the names of alumni, faculty, staff and retirees. Small frames
would contain reliefs of all past college presidents.
In addition to the presidents' reliefs and the names of donors,
the Carillon holds several plaques memorializing former students who died while serving
their country: Sgt. DeForest "Dee" Talbert (Iraq), Lt. Raymond Gilbert (Korea), Lt. Milton Majette (Korea), Lt. Gerald Robbins (Korea), Capt. Roland Belcher (Vietnam), Capt. George Colemen (Vietnam).
