About Collins | What's with the Gnome?
Three stained glass windows in the lobby of Edmondson Hall depict a gnome at different activities. These gnomes show up on our t-shirts, in our publications, and even in our slogans (the student Board of Educational Programming claims, “We put the ‘know’ in gnome!”).
Why are the windows there? We don’t know, but a similar stained glass window appears in one of the buildings that formerly served as a women’s residence center on campus.
