"The Sisters of Mercy, in establishing Mount Mercy, sought to blend faith and values with liberal arts learning and professional preparation. That tradition continues and grows with these distinctive plans for Mount Mercy University. Join with us as we embrace these projects that will inspire the Mount Mercy community, past and present."

Engraved Pavers

Honoring a loved one or commemorating a special date in stone can seal memories in a safe and lasting legacy.

Mount Mercy is pleased to offer a beautiful and lasting platform to honor a loved one or commemorate a special occasion forever. Mount Mercy's Rohde Family Plaza, nestled next to the Sisters of Mercy University Center, is constructed with pavers that offer the opportunity for personal engraving. By purchasing an engraved paver, you will join us in marking a very special moment in our history. University Center has created distinction as the striking centerpiece of our campus, with the stones of the patio resting in its shadow.

A large- or medium-sized paver, each holding up to four or five lines of personalized text, is available to individuals or families.

Allow us to engrave your name—or that of a friend, colleague or loved one—on a paver now.
