Archival Photo & Story Contest

The Archives & History Committee of the Alumni Association Board of Representatives invites all alumni to participate in a special contest!

You are invited to consider your personal archive of photos, journals, letters and ephemera from your time as a student and select an item to share with the University Archives.

All who submit will receive a participation prize and special prizes will be awarded to those who submit material that adds something new to the archives!

The University Archives seeks items that contribute to the larger story of Pacific University. The Archives are particularly interested in photos and stories that depict the experience of people and groups who were underrepresented during their time at Pacific, as well as photos and written documents from the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s. 

In addition, the Archives is interested in first-person written accounts that describe Pacific throughout time – journals, letters, scrapbooks, etc.

Alumni who are not ready to part with physical material may submit their entry by uploading a high-quality scan,  in person at Abbott Alumni Center or by mail to the Alumni Association.

Alumni who wish to offer donations of original physical material for consideration by the archives may also submit a scan or photo of the item by upload, in person at Abbott Alumni Center or by mail to the Alumni Association.

Contest winners will be announced in August.
