Tiger Plaza The waterfall and pool at Tiger Plaza with fall annual display. Located on the south end of Mel Carnahan Quadrangle the Tiger Plaza creates a terminus for this space. A gift of the MU Alumni Association and other private contributors, Tiger Plaza is MU's newest landmark. The plaza features a life-size, bronze Bengal Tiger (created by renowned sculptor Forest Hart), standing atop a waterfall cascading over a plaque inscribed with MU's alma mater. The plaza was dedicated October 2002 during the university's Homecoming celebration.
