Blazer Bricks

Etch Your Name Into Hood History

More than 100 years ago, the founders of Hood College laid the foundation for this great institution—brick by brick.

Alumni, parents and friends have already purchased personalized brick pavers, now installed in the Jeanne Zimmerman Gearey ’52 Plaza. You, too, can be a part of the Hood legacy by ordering your Blazer Brick today.

Located between Alumnae Hall and Hodson Science Center, the personalized bricks can honor a friend or faculty member, memorialize a classmate or provide your own legacy at Hood College. Thousands of students and alumni will recognize your role in helping to build and sustain our legacy.

Brick pavers are a unique way to commemorate a favorite Hood memory, group, classmates or you!
