Centennial Circle Bricks

Centennial Circle was established in 1993, when UM celebrated its 100th birthday. Paved with red bricks, the circle surrounds Rudy Autio's landmark grizzly bear statue, located on the western edge of UM's Oval.

Become a permanent part of the University of Montana campus by having your name or another special person's name engraved on a brick in Centennial Circle.

Centennial Circle Bricks cost $200 each and may be engraved with the names of students, alumni, family members, friends, teachers and anyone else who deserves special recognition. Brief messages also are an option.

The format for each brick is three lines of 14 characters maximum. The bricks are engraved twice a year – before spring Commencement and before Homecoming in the fall. The orders for the next engraving in the spring must be received by April 20, 2022. UM plans to engrave the bricks before spring Commencement on Saturday, May 14, 2022 (weather permitting). UPDATE: The spring 2022 bricks will be engraved after Commencement at the earliest opportunity. 

Proceeds from bricks sales go toward special UM projects and marketing.
