As Brock’s 50th Anniversary quickly approaches, we thought it was appropriate to mark the upcoming milestone by delving into the University’s archives and sharing some photos housed in Special Collections at the James A. Gibson Library.  Although there are literally thousands of photos that tell Brock’s story, Brock Alumni Relations has uncovered a few unique and rarely seen shots that illustrate Brock’s varied and expansive history.

Each issue of upcoming Brock Alumni Connect eNewsletters will focus on a different theme: faculty, athletics, Brock’s growing campus and more.

This October issue captures photos of Brock’s most interesting and important resource: its students. Photos of students spanning five decades tell Brock’s story in a way no words ever could. Do you recognize anyone in these photos? Enjoy!

1968: Car prank

To create a stir during the third Winter Carnival festivities, students push a Volkswagen through the corridors of the campus and parked it in front of the auditorium stage, where it sat until the end of the day.
