Digitized Yearbooks (1986 and 1987)

The UDM Libraries/Instructional Design Studio is pleased to announce the release of the 1986 and 1987 digitized Tower Yearbooks into our digital archives.

The styles have changed, the faces have changed, the way we viewed the world has changed, but since the 1986 and 1987 Tower Yearbooks were originally published, the tower itself and the exterior buildings surrounding it have pretty much stayed the same. It’s interesting looking back on those years through the pages of these yearbooks to realize that students then are basically the same as they are now: fun loving, intelligent, and eager for “great things.” They may have worn different clothes and played different games (there’s an obvious lack of technology in these pages that we now see on campus), but the faces of those students then offer the same hope for the future that is evident on the faces of students now.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out the digital yearbook archives. You can find some amazing images and history all the way back to the first yearbook publication in 1923.
