On July 6, 1901 the Board of Trustees approved the expenditure of $250 to purchase squirrels for campus. In the recommendation in referring to why the campus needed squirrels it says 'If successful, the influence upon University life, and upon the feelings of students, would be considerable, and students would carry that influence to all parts of the State.'
