The marker is located at the Coliseum Blvd. entrance of the campus and is made of bricks purchased by members of the community to honor or memorialize someone. The cost of a brick was $20. The dedication ceremony took place on October 21, 2001. The marker was a symbol of the campus as standing on more than brick or mortar but on the investments of its students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends. The walkway was designed by horticulturist Rich Weber.
