In a circular series below the murals are plaques setting forth utterances of the Sage of the Dominican Order, St. Thomas Aquinas. These artistically framed plaques of green marble are lettered in gold. Inserted alternately with them are ornamental brooches re-echoing the symbolism of the murals. Each plaque bears a complete principle, simple and indubitable. Clockwise about the circle, we read:
These basic principles are representative of the education fostered at Marywood.
The coloring of this circle is one of reticent harmonies and cool tones, reserved decoration that affords an agreeable transition to the murals of the mezzanine floor. In the medallions from left to right are Pope Pius X, Bishop O'Reilly, and Pope Pius XI.
