The Firstenburg Family Fountain is a gift from Ed and Mary Firstenburg. Their desire was to give to the community for civic beautification, while creating a gathering place for campus and community. The fountain received a Community Pride Design Award in 2001.
The active year-round fountain consists of four distinct water features. It offers seating areas where students, faculty, staff and visitors can relax and enjoy views of Mount St. Helens to the north and Mt. Hood to the east.
