Cementing Legacies: The Crain Family Centennial Promenade

Donors who made a $100 special gift to the Crain Family Centennial Promenade during The Second Century Campaign will be recognized with an etched paver and will make a permanent mark on the Hilltop.

The Crain Family Centennial Promenade was established during The Second Century Campaign, which enables SMU to attract high-achieving students, advance faculty and academic excellence and enrich the campus experience. Contributions to the Centennial Promenade supported this historic campaign, which raised unprecedented funding to ensure SMU's second century of achievement. Construction of the Centennial Promenade will be completed in time for the closing celebration of The Second Century Campaign in 2016.

Although the final opportunity to make a contribution to the Centennial Promenade ended December 31, you can still make your mark during this historic time on the Hilltop by supporting scholarships, academic programs and other campus enhancements. Your support will continue to position SMU for a brighter future as it shapes the world changers of tomorrow. Make your gift today to support SMU.
