For more than fifty years, Penn State Berks has been making an impact in southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond because of the remarkable community of students, faculty, and alumni whose success stories begin at our campus. To celebrate those whose accomplishments define our history and pave the way towards the future, we invite you to help build the Lion's Landing at Penn State Berks.
Designed as a focal point near the new Penn State Berks turf field, the Lion's Landing is a collection of brick pavers inscribed with names and messages honoring the people who make Penn State Berks a uniquely special place. This is the first opportunity of its kind at Penn State Berks and is open to current students, alumni, faculty and staff, friends of the college, parents, and the community. Celebrate your graduating Penn Stater, student athlete, mentor, or fellow alumni by purchasing a brick inscribed with a name and personal message. Bricks may be purchased for $150 (for current students), $250 (4" x 8") or $400 (8" x 8"), offering three or six lines of inscription space respectively. Inscriptions may have up to 15 characters per line including spaces.
Construction on the plaza began in April and was completed by Spring Commencement 2015, making it a great gift for graduating seniors. For updates on construction, follow our progress on Facebook.
