Sesquicentennial Plaza Project
As part of the University’s Sesquicentennial celebration in 2017-2018, alumni and friends were invited to make their mark on the Truman campus by joining the efforts to renovate Sesquicentennial Plaza, the Mall that stretches between McClain Hall and the Student Union Building. Naming opportunities ranged from personalized bricks and pavers, to gardens and other parts of the mall.
Magruder Hall Brick Plaza
During a past campaign to raise funds for the renovation and expansion of Magruder Hall, the University’s primary science facility, donors purchased bricks and capstones engraved with a personalized message. If you purchased a brick or capstone during the campaign, you can find its location in the Brick Plaza by using the Magruder Hall Plaza Brick Look-Up Tool.Brick Lookup Tool
