Your Brick. Your Legacy. For Generations

Illini Dads Centennial Plaza

  • Honors the role and impact that Dads/father figures have in the lives of their Illini students: uplifting, evoking memories of their Dads/father figures, reflecting the love, acceptance, and support we all need from each other.
  • Is a place where students, families, alumni, and visitors come to reflect, relax, and create lasting memories for generations

Help Create a Legacy – Purchase a Custom Brick
