Outside of the Sid Easley Alumni Center is a beautiful plaza honoring alumni and friends of the University. Murray State alumni and friends may have their names and the names of those they would like to honor or memorialize on bricks in the patio area of the Sid Easley Alumni Center. Sororities, fraternities and other organizations can sponsor a commemorative brick as a means of honoring the memory of past members or honoring its current membership.
A monument to the institution’s history, Ordway Hall, the University’s first male dormitory, was constructed in 1931. Throughout the years Ordway has served many different purposes for Murray State. During WWII, while the naval units were here, men were housed in Wells Hall and women in Ordway Hall. Between 1955 and 1960, Ordway Hall was renovated at a cost of $48, 516 and made available for women. The 1972 school year was the last year Ordway was used as a women’s dormitory and later housed offices throughout the years such as Student Affairs, Career Services, Counseling and Testing, Women’s Center, First Year Experience Program and the Center for Academic Advising.
The facility was razed in June of 2013 with sections of the front wall and entry way
saved as part of the Ordway Monument. A total of 1000 bricks and other sentimental
artifacts were saved and are sold as keepsakes. To purchase your own piece of Murray
