You can leave a lasting legacy at Slippery Rock University by purchasing a brick for the patio.

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.
