100 Years, 100 Stones

A popular structure on campus celebrates SDSU's 100th birthday.

Where am I Wednesday visits spots around campus to share the history and significance of why each location makes SDSU great. 

You've probably walked by it hundreds of times, but have you ever stopped to look at the 100 Years, 100 Stones monument on Campanile Walkway?

The sculpture was unveiled in the fall of 1997 to celebrate San Diego State University's 100th birthday. The sculpture, which was designed by Eve Andree Laramee, features 100 stones collected from 100 sites within a 100-mile radius of SDSU, for use within the 100-foot circumference of the design. Each stone is identified as to its specific site of origin and its importance to SDSU history. 

You can find students hanging out inside the structure, practicing monologues, having meetings and studying every day. 

Next time you walk by, feel free to step inside the structure and belt out a song —  the structure’s central floor creates an echo, amplifying the sound. Don't be shy!
