In May, UW–Madison added its newest campus monument: the Divine Nine Garden Plaza. Designed to honor the achievements and contributions of the nine historically Black fraternities and sororities, the plaza is situated on East Campus Mall and includes nine markers grouped in a circle. Here, members and alumnae of Sigma Gamma Rho pose in front of their sorority’s marker.
