Pave the Way

Alumnae House Brick Campaign


Mary Baldwin dedicated the Alumnae House during Homecoming Weekend in May 1983. Over the years, countless events have been celebrated there. Prior to the university’s acquisition, it was a private residence known as Shannon Hill. Sam Collins, son of well-known Staunton architect T.J. Collins, designed the elegant Colonial Revival home in 1913 for S.D. Timberlake Jr. and his family.

Join us in support of the Alumnae House Pave the Way Campaign to complete the final phases of its renovation.

Our alumni are the true legacy of our 175-year history. It is this reason the Alumnae House is the centerpiece project of our quartoseptcentennial.

Leave a Legacy

Mary Baldwin’s historic Alumnae House is undergoing renovations so that it can serve as a thriving center for alumni activities as well as a venue for university events and overnight guests.

We are offering a special opportunity for you to show your support in a way that will last for generations. Purchase a personalized brick paver to be installed outside of the Alumnae House, and make your permanent mark on campus.

Make Your Mark

For your gift of $500, you will have the opportunity to personalize an engraved brick with your name, class year, or a brief message that is meaningful to you. Brick pavers are 4” x 8” and offer three lines for personalization, with 18 characters (including spaces) per line.

Your brick paver can honor or remember a loved one or commemorate a special occasion such as a graduation, anniversary, or birth. All proceeds will go toward completing the Alumnae House renovation.

Make Your Gift

Make your gift and send us your personalized text for your brick paver. University Advancement staff will work with you to confirm your inscription before it is engraved.

Please join us for a special celebration of the Alumnae House re-opening during the All-Alumni Homecoming on April 22 at 5 p.m.

Pave the Way: Give Now!

Alumnae and alumni are an important part of the Mary Baldwin community. Although they are spread across the globe, the Alumnae House is their campus presence — their place to meet and celebrate our community — and a point of contact with the university and students into the future.
