What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Peru State is one of the few colleges that is easily defined as "up front and personal" in the state of Nebraska. It is not only the oldest college in Nebraska, but specializes in Education, Criminal Justice, Psychology, Business, Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences. Students return to Peru State each year because lots of student relationships are made here and the town, being a college town, is very supportive of the college's efforts each year.
