Help Us Tell the University of Illinois Story

The University of Illinois Alumni Association and the UI Student Life and Culture Archives are seeking donations—photos, artifacts, and audio and video recordings—for possible display at the official University of Illinois Welcome Center. Materials from all decades are welcome; however, items of particular interest are objects relating to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign from the 1950s to the present, including photos and memorabilia reflecting student life, campus organizations and extracurricular activities—especially from minority or underrepresented groups. There also is an interest in acquiring high-definition scans of UI diplomas from Illinois’ 150-year history. If you have a photo, object/artifact or diploma that you would like to be considered for donation, please complete and submit the form below.
