NEW ORLEANS, La.- The Tulane University Athletics Department will give its fans and supporters an opportunity to be a permanent part of Green Wave history as Director of Athletics Rick Dickson announced the Tulane Athletics Brick Campaign in Support of Turchin Stadium on Wednesday.
Tulane offers three individually-engraved brick options - the Brick Paver, the Logo Paver and the Granite Paver - that will be used to form the gateway to the new Turchin Stadium. The eight-by-eight inch Brick and Logo Pavers will be in the fan plaza outside of the stadium, while the 16-by-16 inch Granite Paver will be placed just inside Turchin's entrance.
"As we emerge from the most challenging period in the history of our region, Tulane Athletics is paving the foundation for a promising future for all Green Wave student-athletes," Dickson said. "The grand opening of the new Turchin Stadium in early April will launch a new and promising era in Tulane Athletics.
"Join us as we celebrate our rich tradition and help secure the future for all Green Wave student-athletes. I invite you to permanently display your support for Tulane Athletics as we build one of the finest collegiate baseball facilities in the country."
The commemorative pavers feature up to six lines of text and are available starting at $275. The Brick Paver features an option of using six full lines of text, while the Logo Paver features Tulane's marquee T-Wave logo and up to four lines of text. The Granite Paver has the T-Wave logo and six lines of text, and comes with a complementary replica for display in the home or office. Replica Brick Pavers and Logo Pavers for personal collections are available starting at $75 with the purchase of said paver.
Quantities are very limited and paver availability will be issued in a first-come, first-serve basis. Pavers can be used as a dedication for yourself, a loved one or your favorite Green Wave student-athlete or fan.
Proceeds from the Tulane Athletics Brick Campaign benefit the Turchin Stadium Renovation Project. This purchase will not, however, count as credit to the Tulane Athletics Fund and subsequently can not be used to help reserve prime seating at the new Turchin.
