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 past and present live mascots, 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.
