14 apples a day keep less-than-stellar grades away?

Photo of apples placed at Minerva statueThe tradition of leaving items at the Minerva statue continues to grow.

At the end of the first day of classes this week, a light drizzle fell on items left on all sides of the base of the statue. In total there were 14 apples – a few had a coin partly stuck into the side of the apple. Perhaps that’s a double offering?

Lots of coins were evident: 17 pennies, four nickels and one quarter. There was one red, decorative red pepper. And two flowers. One was a red rose.

The other was a large white daisy, set at the center front of the base.
