The Apple

Clarion Students' Association, in collaboration with the Traditions Council, unveiled an apple sculpture Sept. 7, 2013, on the lawn of Grunenwald Center for Science and Technology. Students have embraced this new canvas to share their thoughts and promote their organizations. "Painting on the apple is very popular, even during winter," said  Kaitlyn Jones, a recent graduate of the Communication program. "You are lucky if your message remains on the apple for 24 hours.  The space is very much in demand." Funded through the CSA Special Projects Fund, the apple sculpture honors Clarion University's long-standing commitment to education since its founding as Clarion Seminary in 1867.

The Apple is intended for use/painting by Clarion University Students, Registered Student Organizations and Registered University Organizations to promote their organizations and activities.
