Be a part of Alpha Zeta's lasting history: Engrave your name on the AZ front walkway!

Alpha Zeta Corporation Board Vice President and Furnishings Chair Dan Frechen led an effort in 2016 to give the Alpha Zeta house a facelift, as part of preparations for the Centennial Celebration, held on April 23, 2016.

Brother Frechen's project included replacing the front walkway and landing with compressed concrete pavers, updating the brick walls in front of the house and renovating the porch stairs. Starting in 2016, alumni were able to purchase commemorative pavers to have engraved and featured as part of the front walkway. This opportunity is still available to those looking to support Alpha Zeta while leaving their own lasting legacy on the house.

Read on for different options to this offering. Place your order by December 31, 2018 in order to take advantage of these prices.

The pavers will be installed in August, prior to the start of the school year and football season. So alumni can come back in the fall and find their piece of AZ history! 

Paver options:

6" x 6" brick at $200
(up to three lines of copy, 14 spaces per line)

6" x 9" brick at $350
(up to four lines of copy, 15 spaces per line)

9" x 9" brick at $500 
(up to five lines of copy, 15 spaces per line)

*Note: Special characters and spaces are included in the 14 or 15 limit. Please see Commonly Asked Questions for more details.
