Memory Paths

In order to honor alumni and friends of the college, Indian Hills has created Memory Paths on both the Ottumwa and Centerville campuses. The Ottumwa Campus Memory Path is located around the pond behind the Hellyer Student Life Center, while the Centerville Campus Memory Path is near the recently renovated “Barn” or Student Union.

For a donation of $50, $100, or $150, a stone will be engraved with your name or the name of a loved one. The stone will be incorporated into a walkway on the campus of your choice. New stones will be installed twice each year, once in April, prior to graduation ceremonies, and once in September, prior to Homecoming. All proceeds from the Memory Path Project will provide scholarships for Indian Hills students through the IHCC Foundation.
