Located in front of Neil Armstrong Hall, this bronze sculpture of Purdue alumnus Neil Armstrong by Chas Fagan depicts Armstrong as an undergraduate student of the 1950s. He is sitting on a stone plinth and wearing a windbreaker, Oxford shirt, khaki pants and penny loafers. His right hand is on a small stack of books, and his slide rule is removed from the case and ready for use. Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon, is gazing over his left shoulder at a trail of sculpted moon boot impressions and other symbolic features.
