Alpha Delta Chapter of Phi Mu celebrated its 75 years at Ole Miss by giving the centerpiece for the new
quadrangle at the University of Mississippi, between the J.D. Williams Library and the Paris Yates Chapel. At the
center of the quadrangle is the Phi Mu Fountain donated by alumnae and friends of Phi Mu’s Alpha Delta chapter.
The fountain is in the shape of the Phi Mu pin.
