Patio Bricks Make Great Gifts!
Looking for the perfect gift for the Rock Alum in your life? You can leave a lasting legacy at Slippery Rock University by purchasing a brick for the patio - or a brick gift certificate, allowing the recipient to personalize their brick. Brick orders received by June 30 will be installed by Homecoming & Reunion Weekend.
The patio, which is adjacent to the Russell Wright Alumni House and Conference Center, is a popular gathering spot for alumni and students alike. Named brick(s) are typically personalized by engraving a name and graduation year; however, many also choose to add personalized messages, Greek letters or student organization names. Bricks can also be purchased in honor or in memory of a loved one.
