To the editor of The Echo:
Greetings from the Community of the Obelisk!
This university’s campus changed forever with the advent of a new architectural wonder: the towel and basin sculpture. Or, as we call it, the Obelisk. I think we can honestly say that none of us really expected to get this carried away. As a junior, I have rarely seen any opportunities to bring such a motley crew of Taylor students together; this obelisk (or, as some of our misguided brethren may call it, this monolith) has created a unique chance for us to undertake pilgrimage, truth-seeking, and fellowship with one another. And we’d love for you to join us! Dedicate yourself to the Obelisk!
In reality, though, we’re just a group of college kids who get a little bit stir-crazy on Monday nights. We’ve laughed together, enjoyed the dedication ceremony together (non-disruptively), and have even had the privilege of washing one another’s feet, and I tthink that the Obelisk is just one more powerful example of what our Taylor experience can be when we choose to embrace the weirdness of one another.
Praise be to the Obelisk!
