Illini Dads Centennial Plaza

Located near the intersection of Illinois Street and Lincoln Avenue, the Illini Dads Centennial Plaza is in the northwest quadrant that houses Hallene Gateway and the fountain in front of the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. 

The plaza was designed by UIUC students to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Illini Dads Association in 2022.


Purchase a Brick & Leave Your Legacy

The Illini Dads Centennial Plaza honors the role and impact that father figures have in the lives of their Illini students. The plaza was designed to evoke memories of father figures, reflecting the love, acceptance, and support we all need from each other.
The plaza is an uplifting place where students, families, alumni, and visitors come to reflect, relax, and create lasting memories for generations


You can celebrate your Illini student and establish your legacy with a brick purchase in the Illini Dads Centennial Plaza. Your customized brick will be prominently placed in Illini Dads Centennial Plaza where it can be cherished by your family, generation after generation.
Bricks purchased before June 30, 2024 will be installed in 2024.
