Every campus has a number of architectural features, memorials, or class gifts which often go unnoticed though they may be seen regularly.
Within this exhibit we invite you to take a look at a few of the WOU campus details which are mostly overlooked or hidden in parts of the campus you may not often visit. The textures of a campus, much like the textures of our clothing bring richness to our world we experience on an unconscious level. As you walk through campus this year, we challenge you to take notice of a few extra textures.
These textures reveal the historical quest for academic excellence at Western Oregon University. For more information on the many historical elements on campus, contact the Western Oregon University Archives.
LOCATION: 3rd floor gallery
Curator: Jerrie Lee Parpart
A special acknowledgement goes to Michele Burke, Library Staff Member for the initial idea for the exhibit and for providing the rubbings.
