Mary Behrend Monument Walk
For three years, Penn State Behrend enabled alumni and friends to honor themselves, family, graduates, future Penn Staters, and others with an inscribed paver at the Mary Behrend Monument. Gifts of $150 included a paver inscribed with up to three lines of 14 characters. The monument honors Mary Behrend's decision to donate her family's summer home to Penn State and gives you a permanent place to leave a lasting mark at Behrend.
