      The 13 spouts on the Berger Memorial Fountain on the west side of Old Main represent the 13 University of Arizona students that were killed in service during World War I. The Bobcats is a senior honorary that was formed after the war with 13 seniors to protect the heritage and traditions of the university.

      Gifts to the Bobcat endowment help support this student experience which pledges “Eternal Vigilance” to the university. A Bobcat’s experience begins as a senior and is carried on through a lifelong dedication to the support and advancement of the UArizona.
