A New Gateway to Albright College

Later this spring an impressive new gateway to Albright will greet visitors who drive down Rockland Street to North 13th. This latest campus enhancement is made possible through the generosity of Salvatore M. Cutrona Sr. ’73 and Nanette Ferrante Cutrona ’74. Sal Cutrona is a longtime Albright trustee and chair of the board who retired from the board last fall.

The gateway is designed by The Ray Group, and constructed and landscaped by Spayd’s Landscaping, who created both the new Sylvan Pond area and the new Library Plaza. The illuminated brick and stucco structure will be flanked by 13 flags– the U.S., Pennsylvania and Albright flags along with 10 flags of home nations of international students currently enrolled. The flags will be rotated periodically so that all the home nations of current students will be displayed from time to time.

The project will be completed by late February, with a formal dedication in early May.

“The Cutronas have long had a dream of a new gateway for the College. I am deeply grateful for their ongoing generosity and their passionate desire to make this place better and better,” said President Lex McMillan.
