**While You’re On sure to visit one of the newest additions to Berea’s landscape, the John G. Fee Glade and accompanying Legacy Wall, which were dedicated by the Board of Trustees in 2009. The Fee Glade is a green space for rest and reflection punctuated by seating areas adjacent to quotes by John G. Fee literally set in stone--Wildie Sandstone to be precise, which is commonly found in Berea and the surrounding area and was used in the construction of various buildings on campus. The Fee Glade is located in the area formerly occupied by the old heat plant, laundry, and utilities operations. The Legacy Wall, which frames the east side of the Fee Glade, contains the names of over 3,200 alumni and friends who made estate of life-income gifts to the College since its inception (new names are added each year, as bequests distributions or life-income gift remainders are received). For additional information about the Fee Glade or Legacy Wall, or to search for a name on the Legacy Wall, visit the web at
