It is the students that make a school, and the activities of students reflect historically what is important to a school. This collection contains items focused on general and academic student life. Athletics, which have always played a large part in the lives of students at the University of Pikeville, has its own collection, which can be viewed here.
Clubs and student activities have changed throughout the years, reflecting changes in society and culture. Items related to student life also comment on the history of the area, such as material related to the Flood of 1977. It is most often in the images of daily activities and relaxation that current students can relate to students of the past.
The University of Pikeville's website has more information on the current Campus Life. If you recognize the faces of any of the unnamed students in the images, please contact the University Archivist with your information.
