Varied Off-Campus Activities
Students could be found anywhere from the spreading oak on campus to the Missouri River off campus. The "Majestic Missouri" made a nice place for picnics or other extra-curricular activities carried on by the students. If a student just wanted to get away from the rush of campus life, he could go to the park or the country.
The town of Peru offered many such scenes for the student — all the way from the quiet river scenes to the VFW club where a student could find fun and excitement.
Several churches located in Peru added to the students’ spiritual growth, and if their church wasn’t in the town, they could find a ride to a nearby town where there was a church of their choice.
Peru, located between Auburn and Nebraska City, allowed the students other activities.
The "Muddy Mo", located a few miles off campus provides a place to picnic or just enjoy the beauty of the countryside. In some places, one can find a nice sunny beach to sunbathe on or fish.
