architectural mock up of sesquicentennial plaza


Peru State College is celebrating a 150-year tradition built on a passion for student-centered education with strong relationships between students and dedicated faculty and staff.

 

Alumni and friends have a unique opportunity to celebrate the College’s sesquicentennial and recognize their experiences on campus, as well as support future generations of students.

When you make a donation to the Sesquicentennial Plaza Program, you will leave a permanent mark on the Peru State College campus and support the College’s areas of greatest need through the General Fund.

By donating to the Sesquicentennial Plaza Program, alumni and friends will be recognized with engraved paving stones on campus.  Two sizes of paving stones are available for engraving and will be placed in the Sesquicentennial Plaza directly south of the newly renovated College Theatre.  Details on sizing, engraving and donation below.

By making a gift through the Sesquicentennial Plaza Program, you are helping to fund a level of excellence not supported through the regular budget.  Investing in Peru State College through this fund allows you to truly make a difference in the lives of today’s students and offer them opportunities they may not otherwise afford.
