Senior Class Gifts

Penn State Behrend started the tradition of leaving a legacy and improving the college in some way with the Class of 2002. And at Penn State, almost every graduating class since 1861 made a memorable gift to the University. Since 2002, graduating Behrend seniors have generously given to these lasting gifts:

2002: Flagpole and plaque memorializing two Behrend alumni who were victims of the 9/11 tragedy

2003 and 2004: Behrend Lion Shrine and Lion Plaza

2005: Benches outside of the Reed Union Building and Senat Hall

2006: Crabapple Trees at Behrend’s Entrance

2007 and 2008 : Smith Chapel Meditation Garden and Seating

2009 : Reed Lounge Renovations

2010: Art Piece Showcasing Behrend

2011: Penn State Shield at Reed Union Building’s Outdoor Patio

2012: Glenhill Pool Renovation and Fountain Project

2013: Mary Behrend Monument
