Remembrance Bricks from Long Hall:
Many people have been asking about acquiring a brick from Long Hall. These bricks will be available in the coming weeks for those interested in having one.
The tentative plans at this point are to offer the bricks for a donation to benefit the students in the John M. Long School of Music and the “Sound of the South.” The specific amount is not yet determined.
