MU to build amphitheater for 175th anniversary

(COLUMBIA, Mo., AP) — The University of Missouri has announced plans to build an outdoor amphitheater near Jesse Hall in honor of the school’s 175th anniversary.

The Mizzou Alumni Association project known as Traditions Plaza will be located on the north side of the Carnahan Quadrangle, across from Jesse Hall.

Alumni association executive director Todd McCubbin says the theater will be used for concerts, spirit rallies, outdoor classes and other activities.

School donors will be able to buy commemorative bricks and tiles with their names that will be installed on the theater grounds. The university hopes to have the project complete this fall.
