When I was a student at USL, I lived in all of the women's dorms that have been or will be torn down - Denbo, Bancroft, Bonin, Evangeline and Baker-Huger. I have wonderful memories of those days, so I'm happy to tell you about a special opportunity to cherish a piece of the past! A limited number of commemorative bricks from UL Lafayette’s Rose Garden dorms are now being offered. The cost for a keepsake brick is $100 which covers shipping cost and a commemorative plate that will be affixed to each brick. The plate will have the University name and logo and the names of the Rose Garden dormitories -- Baker-Huger, Bonin and Evangeline -- that are being replaced with new living-learning residence halls.

To order a brick, please mail a $100 check or money order payable to UL Lafayette Foundation (please note Rose Garden Commemorative Brick in the memo line of the check or money order) to:

UL Lafayette Office of Development P.O. Drawer 43410 Lafayette, LA 70504

For credit card orders, please call Sharyn Donnell in the UL Lafayette Office of Development at (337) 482-0922.

Brick orders will be accepted only through Friday, October 28, 2011. Bricks will be shipped by December 1, 2011.
