Compass Scholars Walk

Now is the perfect time to celebrate your graduate with a lasting gift. Spaces are available to make your mark at MSU with personalized bricks and pavers at iconic campus locations through the Compass Scholars Walk and the Maroon Mile programs.

The Compass Scholars Walk, located south of Davis Wade Stadium, is the primary pathway through the heart of gameday territory in The Junction. Gifts designated for this program will benefit the Compass Scholarship Program, which gives MSU a competitive advantage as we recruit top students who will excel and uphold MSU’s long-standing tradition of excellence and service. Three size options are available, including 8” x 4” bricks, 8” square bricks and 16” square granite pavers. Keepsake replica bricks are also available for purchase.

Similarly, the Maroon Mile creates an opportunity for alumni and friends to add their message to the walkways that run through the historic Drill Field. Gift to this program benefit the Division of Student Affairs, which works to enrich the total MSU experience through student services, organizations and activities. Options for this location include 4” x 8” bricks and 8” x 24” granite pavers.

Both programs are a perfect way to:
• Honor a special Bulldog or influential faculty mentor.
• Memorialize a loved one.
• Celebrate a new graduate!

Plus, the contribution will activate your annual membership in the MSU Alumni Association!

Bricks and pavers make great graduation gifts. Commemorative certificates acknowledging the installment can be requested upon purchase to ensure you with a timely gift to give your graduate.
