LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A generous gift will soon provide an extravagant welcome for those entering Bellarmine University.
The three-and-a-half story gate is being donated by a couple who met while attending the college. The pair owns a concrete company out of Virginia.
University president Joseph McGowan says this act of generosity shows the school's growing alumni spirit.
The architecture of the gate aims to replicate that of the hillside town in Italy where St. Bellarmine was from: "Here we are on three beautiful hills, we thought, we don't we just conceptualize our space as an Italian hill town."
The gate should be finished in the next couple of days. A similar entrance will then be erected on the north side of the university.
