“GU Speak” is a new monthly post that lets you in on the lingo used around campus.

A.J.’s Way is the brick walkway running from 7th Street to 8th Street next to Zurn Science Center. It is named for A.J. Palumbo, who donated $1 million towards the renovation of the Academic Center that also bears his name.

While A.J.’s Way is most often traveled by students on their way to or from class, it is also the location of many activities throughout the year. Some of these activities including fundraisers, Box City (a charity fundraising event hosted by Campus Ministry to raise awareness of homelessness) and Light Up A.J.’s Way, during which the entire path is brightly lit by Christmas lights.
