(CNN)The boulder is known simply as “The Rock” and it’s a fixture on the campus of Michigan State University.

It’s a constantly changing billboard. Students leave everything from birthday greetings to political messages, one layer of paint at a time.

Since late last week, when doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 175 years for sexually abusing girls and young women for decades, the Rock has sported a powerful new look.

Students painted the boulder white, along with the words “THANK YOU” in teal, and a heart.

They also hand-painted the names of more than 150 women who accused Nassar of abusing them.
