Renovation of the signature Memorial Court Fountain at Fresno State has begun with demolition of the concrete surrounding the fountain. The makeover will include seating around the rim and is scheduled to be complete in late April. Associated Students Inc. and the University Student Union Board of Directors donated $40,000 to the project with funds provided by the Class of 2011’s gift to the university. The fountain, designed by the late professor Ronald Blanton, was dedicated in 1962 as part of the Memorial Court honoring Fresno State war veterans.
