The Class of 1893 gateway was designed in 1900 by two members of the Class of 1893: Elliston Perot Bissell and William Charles Hays. The Class of ’93 Gateway, located at 3400 Spruce Street, was modeled after Cope and Stewardson‘s Gate on Hamilton Walk. The Class of ’93 Gateway is inscribed with a phrase in Latin which translates to, “We shall find a way, or we shall make one.”
