Trice statue to be moved near stadium

The Jack Trice sculpture on campus will be moved to a site near the Cyclones' football field that bears his name.

The statue was removed from its site between Beardshear and Carver halls Jan. 21 and shipped to Connecticut for maintenance. Upon completion, the sculpture will be located this summer on the lawn east of the Olsen Building.

University officials accepted the recommendation of the Government of the Student Body, which voted unanimously in October to move the bronze sculpture to a location near Cyclone Stadium/Jack Trice Field. GSB senators want the statue relocated near the stadium to increase its visibility, said GSB President Adam Gold.

"We're very happy with the move," Gold said. "Making the statue more visible is a great way to honor Jack Trice."
