What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
If you are into an independent lifestyle, Peru State is the college for you.
If you can make your own fun by establishing friendships and professional relationships with your professors, consider Peru State.

Our football stadium, the Oak Bowl, was just recently renovated for $9 million, and is now ranked one of the top football stadiums used in the nation. The rededication ceremony to the Oak Bowl was held September 6th, 2014, right before the first football game of the 2014-2015 season.

Class sizes range from 20:1

You are responsible for choosing your own classes but you do have an advisor to help you choose which college courses fit your four-year college career path.

Peru State is the college that encourages students to get involved and get out of their comfort zones, because that is how you can grow and learn, especially outside of the classroom.

There is always someone there to help students like myself succeedâ??professors, classmates, club sponsors, department coordinators, and even two licensed student counselors on campus.

President Dan Hanson and First Lady Elaine Hanson are very involved with activities and events occurring on campus. They also like to get to know students throughout their college experience.

The town of Peru is very supportive of the school and its student body.

Check it out make sure that the small school thing is right for you. Don't just apply because it is inexpensive, you can get cabin fever that way.
