Mark your place in Alumni Plaza
The deadline to claim your brick in Alumni Brick Plaza in front of Becker Hall is Friday, August 13. You can leave a lasting legacy by transferring your $150 room/security deposit that you paid when you were a freshman to the Alumni Plaza project account to purchase your engraved brick. You will be investing in future Huntington University students since part of that $150 goes toward student scholarships from the Forester Fund!
