Peru State Sesquicentennial

Peru State To Celebrate 150th Anniversary in 2017

On June 20, 2017, Peru State will turn 150! It was on that day in 1867 that the State Legislature signed a bill to make Peru State the first institution of higher education in the newly formed state of Nebraska.

The college plans to celebrate this historic milestone with a year of special programming and celebrations. We have also commissioned a book detailing the college's dynamic history.
