More than 100 years ago, the founders of Hood College laid the foundation for this great institution—brick by brick. Now you can continue this legacy by purchasing your own brick paver. A special plaza near Alumnae Hall has been designated to display the bricks.
Thousands of students and alumni will recognize your role in helping to build and sustain our legacy. A brick is a unique gift to commemorate a favorite Hood memory, group, classmates, sports team, residential hallmates or yourself!
