The tower of Bombeger Memorial Hall was razed in 1978. The structure had grown old and weather had compromised the wood and nails. College officials were afraid that one good storm would cause all or parts of the tower to collapse. The iconic orange point was removed, and repairs were made to the structure to keep it safe for the students, staff, and visitors to the campus and the building.
