The photo collection consists of thousands and thousands of images dating from the mid-1960s to 2011. The images pertain to various aspects of campus history. The main topics include:

  • Classroom and lab activities
  • Events (such as commencement, Bayfest, concerts, art shows, performances, etc.)
  • Student life
  • Athletics

Approximately four hundred images have been digitized. The images represent a cross-section of the campus’s history and evolution.
