Lining the walkways from Bentley Hall to the new Bicentennial Plaza in front of Schultz Hall will be forty cast-bronze plaques (17 inches square) that celebrate Allegheny’s rich history. Graduates for generations to come will walk these paths to the Bicentennial Plaza to receive their degrees as they get ready to go out into the world and live their ideals in powerful ways.
