The low stone wall around the garden defines a shape approximating that of the state of Ohio. On the side toward Wilson Hall is a plaque inscribed:
"Let us hope, that we who are privileged to be part of a long illustrious line, may have an abiding interest in the things of the mind, the pursuit of truth, the contemplation of beauty, and the attainment of the good life." -- Thomas J. Wolfe, Class of 1919.
On the side toward Scripps Hall is a plaque inscribed:
"The most precious resources of life are books, friends, nature. The greatest of these is nature, an inexhaustible storehouse which moved the heart, appeals to the mind, give health to the body and joy to the soul." -- John Burroughs.
