Gift of campus memories

Rob Rissell ’70 and his wife, Roxanne, are pictured alongside the display of items they donated to the University Archives during the recent “Blue Pride Worldwide” Homecoming celebration. The exhibit features all things UIU – from newspaper clippings and Campus news to receipts and a student ID card – the Waukegan, Illinois, couple collected while students at UIU.

Located in Henderson-Wilder Library, the University Archives features special exhibits and the Oral History Project. As part of the Oral History Project interactive exhibit, visitors may record their own story to become part of the collection or view previously recorded alumni stories.

Alumni wishing to donate items to the University Archives, may contact UIU Archivist Janette Garcia at (563) 425-5722 or
