Personalized bricks are an ideal way to remember a loved one, honor someone special or commemorate a special occasion, such as a graduation, birth or marriage. Thousands of people will pass through the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center, and your brick will be a noticeable part of this landmark facility.

Brick inscriptions will be displayed in public spaces; therefore, the NIU Alumni Association will review all brick inscriptions and will contact you if any modifications to your message are necessary. Logos, phone numbers and Internet addresses are not permitted.
