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 will honor 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. Construction of the monument is underway, located next to the left of the Studio Theatre in Mary Behrend's garden. Completion of the monument is expected fall 2015 with a campus-wide dedication slated for October 24, 2015.
Limited pavers are still available and will be installed after 100 have been purchased. August 17 was the deadline to purchase a paver and have it installed in the initial phase of the project.
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.
Penn State Behrend has left a lasting impression on our hearts, now is our chance to create our own permanent place.
