Alumni Plaza Project

Buy a Brick. Build Your Legacy!

The WIU Alumni Plaza Project is a unique opportunity for you to become a permanent fixture of campus and preserve your legacy as a part of our great University.

You, your family, business or student organization can purchase a personalized brick which will be installed in the new Alumni Plaza, just a few steps away from the University Union, Hanson Field, and future home of the Mascot Memorial Plaza which will pay tribute to WIU's live mascot, Col. Rock.

This will ensure that thousands of students, alumni and campus visitors will recognize your role as the foundation of Western Illinois University.

* Upon checkout, you will receive an email with your personal link to specify your engraving instructions.

A unique gift for your favorite Leatherneck - or yourself!

  • Commemorate a 2018 graduate (or past graduate!)
  • Memorialize a treasured individual, campus organization, fraternity or sorority
  • Declare your devotion to your favorite Leatherneck team
  • Ensure your business is displayed among other corporate supporters

Be a part of tomorrow - today!

Purchase your brick BEFORE JULY 01, 2018 to ensure your brick will be included when the Alumni Plaza is unveiled during Homecoming 2018!
