Dickinson Launches Brick Campaign for John M. Paz ’78 Alumni & Family Center

Alumni & Family Center

The renovation plan includes landscaping improvements to make the space more inviting.

New brick campaign enables donors to support and leave their mark on Dickinson's new alumni and family center

Note: The deadline for the brick/paver campaign is Monday, Sept. 18.

Construction is well underway to renovate the Historic President’s House and transform it into the John M. Paz ’78 Alumni & Family Center at Dickinson College. The project is entirely funded by our generous donors, and now you can be a part of it in a fun, meaningful way, as an exciting new opportunity for alumni, families and friends of the college is available.

While transforming the Historic President’s House into the alumni and family center has required significant maintenance updates and structural changes, beautification is also a big part of the process, both inside and out. When complete, bricks will line the walkway leading to the center, through the Sam G. Rose ’58 Gardens.

Dickinson is now offering an opportunity for you to design your own brick, thereby leaving your mark on Dickinson history and helping the college put the finishing touches on the new project. It’s a great way to commemorate your time at Dickinson or congratulate an alumnus or future graduate. It’s also perfect for celebrating friendships and memories or remembering a parent or loved one.

Whatever the reason, designing a brick will leave a lasting impression on all who approach the new center!
