Walk This Way – First Bricks in the Alumni Legacy Walk Installed
Heritage University alumni are leaving their mark on the university, literally. In October, Heritage dedicated the Alumni Legacy Walk. This pathway, which runs between the university’s signature Kathleen Ross snjm Building and the Violet Lumley Rau Building, is paved with bricks engraved with the names, majors and graduation years of participating alumni.
“Universities are steeped in tradition. Heritage is no exception. We expect that, over time, the Alumni Legacy Walk will grow as more and more of our past and future graduates immortalize their time here with their own brick on the walk,” said David Wise, vice president of advancement.
The legacy walk dedication took place during the university’s first-ever Alumni Family Fun Fest. More than 250 people came out to enjoy the celebration, which included crafts and games for children, trick or treating, bounce houses and a barbeque.
“It was all about celebrating our alumni and bringing them back on campus to reconnect with Heritage and their fellow alums,” said Anne-Marie VanRiper, alumni relations coordinator. “We received great feedback from the families who attended and expect that this will become an annual event.”
