Alumni and Friends



The Founders' Memorial Garden was officially dedicated May 10, 2002. The garden is dedicated to Bishop James A. Griffin, Mother Barbara Klaholt, and the Ursuline Sisters of Springfield for their vision to offer higher education to all students in a faith-based environment.

Engraved bricks for $50 each and 12 x 12 family blocks for $250 each may be purchased. The garden is a beautiful way to honor and preserve the memory of our alumni, friends and family members.

To order a memorial brick or a family block, please contact the Office of College Advancement at 217-718-3489 or download and mail the Founders' Memorial Garden Donation Slip.
