Labyrinth Added to Former Fair Apartments Lot


A recent project has brought a new purpose to the former Fair Apartments lot.

Student Government submitted a proposal in March 2019 that included a plan to develop and implement a rock labyrinth. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol dating back at least 3,500 years. It is a walking meditation device with a single winding path from the edge to the center with the same path used to return to the outside. It Is said that a walking labyrinth is a right-brain activity and can enhance a meditative state of mind. An outdoor labyrinth provides a mechanism for the Truman community to engage in light physical activity, which has been shown to positively impact mental wellbeing.

Student Government set aside funds to complete the project. The construction of the labyrinth started earlier this semester. Paving rocks and a plaque will be added later this semester.
