UT Martin says the Blaylock Inspirational Oracle will also have a groundbreaking ceremony will on Oct. 9.

“The Blaylock Inspirational Oracle is a multi-purpose building that is designed for use by the campus and community for various activities. It is designed as an open-air Greek Parthenon that is home to the greatest and wisest philosophers waiting to inspire students and anyone else who visits.  Some of the expected uses include a reflection area for students and alumni, an outdoor classroom and a meeting space. It will include a magnificent fountain and a large plaza to host various activities,” said Dr. Charley Deal, vice chancellor for University Advancement.
