Using the elements of light, water, stone and trees, this memorial is a special place of remembrance and reflection...a place of inspiration.
The Lynn University Remembrance Plaza is designed to honor the legacies of the four students and two faculty members who died in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti while performing community service there.
Stephanie Crispinelli, Britney Gengel, Christine Gianacaci, Courtney Hayes, Dr. Richard Bruno and Dr. Patrick Hartwick were part of Lynn’s Journey of Hope Haiti humanitarian project when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Port-au-Prince.
Not long after the tragedy, Lynn began planning a tribute for these beloved members of our campus community. The result is Remembrance Plaza, a shimmering memorial of water, light and stone at the heart of our campus.
Each day, Remembrance Plaza draws the awe and appreciation of campus visitors, ensuring that the stories of our students, professors and the Journey of Hope remain with us always.
