The carillon tower reflects the early history of Kearney State College and the Administration Building located adjacent to this site.

The four columns of the carillon tower symbolize the columns that adorned the main entry of the Administration Building which was the first building constructed on the campus. The relief sculptures are adapted from replicas of the Partheon sculptures in Athens, Greece, which were located in the Administration Building auditorium.

The carillon tower honors George and Venetia Peterson and Elias and Mary Yanney who immigrated to Kearney from Greece and Lebanon. The success of the families since their arrival in America reflects the hopes and aspirations of all generations in their pursuit of excellence.
