Classes of 2007 and 2008: See Your Paver in the Walk of Pride
In honor of the Class of 2007's recent five-year reunion, 54 classmates chose to link their name forever with Arcadia University by purchasing an inscribed paver on the Alumni Walk of Pride. This is the last opportunity to purchase a paver at the discounted reunion price of $125. After July 16, the regular price of $150 goes into effect.
With only a year until the Class of 2008's five-year reunion, alumni are encouraged to participate. Twenty-nine members of the class have already made their mark by contributing.
Alumni will have several opportunities in the coming months, through email and mail, to purchase a paver. The next order is being placed on Monday, July 16, 2012 and will be installed in time for Fall Fest in October. A $125 contribution to The Annual Fund will pay for the paver and will be added to the class participation percentage as well.
Please contact Vanessa Jackson ’12, Assistant Director of the Annual Fund, at email@example.com for more information concerning remaining balances on prior pledges. To make an initial contribution, the full amount can be made online at www.arcadia.edu/gift or by mailing a check to The Annual Fund, 450 S. Easton Road, Glenside, PA 19038. Please notate in the comments box online or on the check how the name should be displayed on the paver.

As a result, the 2012 team concluded the year with an 18-21 record and was in contention to enter the conference playoffs on the last day of the regular season. Read more.
