Alumni Brick

Inscription bricks lining the historic walkway of the Alumni plaza arch

The Alumni Plaza and Ostrander Bell Tower has become a symbol of remembering the past and embracing the future. A stone arch taken from the historic Old Main Annex complements the tower and further symbolizes the University's history. You can become a permanent part of this historic walkway of University alumni and friends by purchasing an inscription brick. Graduates and parents may purchase an alumni brick online. Bricks are placed in the Alumni Plaza each year before Homecoming.
