Mary Behrend Monument Walk

Purchase an inscribed paver on the new Mary Behrend Monument Walk


Leave a lasting mark at Penn State Behrend by honoring yourself, your family, your graduate, your future Penn Stater, or others with an inscribed paver at the new Mary Behrend Monument.

The Mary Behrend Monument Walk honors Mary Behrend and the donation of her family’s Glenhill Farm estate to Penn State. Continuing the tradition of giving, each inscribed paver is a gift to Penn State Behrend. The monument is located on the left side of the Studio Theatre in Mary Behrend's garden. The campus-wide dedication was held October 24, 2015; limited pavers are still available for purchase.

Fewer than 200 pavers are available within the inner circle of the monument and we anticipate them selling out and being installed by the summer of 2016.

Cost of the pavers is $150 each; this tax-deductible donation to the college will be acknowledged with a receipt.

A gift acknowledgement option can also be sent to whomever you choose to honor. The giftee will receive a notecard 30 days after you place your order.

All inscriptions will be centered in capital letters (except for names that include a small “c,” such as McGarvey). Inscription can be 3 lines, with a maximum of 14 characters per line. (Spaces and punctuation count as characters.) Greek letters and any symbols that appear on the keyboard can be used. A heart symbol can also be included, but counts as 3 characters.
