Commemorate your legacy or Hood student with a Blazer Brick or Adirondack Chair!

Hood’s hand-made Adirondack chairs are available in two colors, blue or grey, for $500. Each chair will have a 3” x 2” gold plate with your personal message engraved and permanently affixed to the chair. The wording on the plaque is flexible. These chairs, scattered across Hood’s beautiful campus, will benefit our students, faculty, staff and other visitors.

Blazer Bricks are an additional option, which are installed in the Jeanne Zimmerman Gearey ’52 Plaza, located between Alumnae Hall and the Hodson Science and Technology Center. Thousands of students and alumni will recognize your role to help build and sustain Hood’s legacy.
