11th annual “Pride of Our Nation… Pride of Our College”: Nov 12 - Dec 16, 2022

Pride of Our Nation... Pride of Our College is an ever-changing collection of photographs and memorabilia of veterans and active military service members with a connection to the college. Begun with just a handful of photographs, the exhibit now includes more than 100 images and keepsakes, both official “military issue” and personal. Current students and employees submit photos and loan objects -- ranging from dog tags and medals to historic documents and full uniforms -- that pertain to the military career of a relative or themselves. Alice Malavasic, a professor in the Education and Social Sciences Department, organized the first exhibit in 2010. She describes the exhibit as a collaborative effort by the entire campus -- students, faculty and staff.
