When the new Armstrong Student Center opened in 2014, one of its breathtaking focal points was The Great Seal, a 3-D version of the university seal, created with real objects and containing students' words and artwork to link the university's past, present, and future.
Robert Keller (Miami '73), university architect emeritus who is now Miami's planning and design manager, came up with the idea to make this seal three-dimensional nearly three years ago. The project was funded through the support of the William and Dorothy Yeck Foundation.
"One of the neatest things about the whole project is that so many people have been involved," Keller said. "Each piece has a story."
