The Alumni Plaza serves as a testament to the true “brick and mortar” of MBU—those who established the vision of Maranatha and those graduates, churches, businesses, and individuals from around the world who continue to support its mission.
Extending nearly 26 feet by 40 feet from the west side of Old Main, this granite brick patio provides a beautiful setting to recognize or memorialize alumni and friends of Maranatha Baptist University. The Alumni Plaza enhances the campus and newly renovated solarium space, which now features a gabled rooftop and fireplace.
The Alumni Association logo will be engraved on a 16-inch by 16-inch brick and placed in the center of the Plaza. Bordering the Plaza will be 8-inch by 8-inch bricks sponsored by supporting churches. Businesses may also purchase 8-inch by 8-inch bricks. The remaining 8-inch by 8-inch or 4-inch by 8-inch bricks are available for purchase by individuals, families, or couples.
Share Your Tribute
Consider memorializing an MBU graduate or friend of the University by purchasing a brick and having it engraved with a name and graduation date or special tribute.
Each commemorative brick becomes an important part of the Alumni Plaza and adds an enduring element to a setting everyone can enjoy. We anticipate the opening of the Alumni Plaza in August 2017, in time for the 50th year celebration of MBU.
