Mary Behrend Monument Walk Paver Information


Celebrate your connection to Penn State Behrend with an inscribed paver at the Mary Behrend Monument Walk. Recognize your graduation year, fraternity or sorority, club, team, or the special Penn State student in your life with an inscription of up to three lines and fourteen characters per line.

The Mary Behrend Monument Walk honors Mary Behrend and the donation of her family’s Glenhill Farm estate to Penn State. The monument is a nine-foot granite obelisk surrounded by benches, trees, gardens and an inscribed-paver walkway that the college’s alumni and friends have embraced to commemorate important dates, relationships, memories, and people connected to Behrend and to Penn State. The monument was installed on campus in fall 2015 and is located next to what was once Mary’s painting studio, now the college’s Studio Theatre.
