The calligraphy, in ancient seal style characters, was done by Professor Chou Fengwu of National Taiwan University. The four-character couplet is a rendition of the University of Chicago motto: "Crescat Scientia, Vita Excolatur: Let knowledge grow from more to more, and so be human life enriched." The pronunciation in modern Chinese is "yi zhi hou sheng."
