"Belonging at Oxy"
Special Collections and College Archives invites you to see the amazing work of more than 100 students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff who contributed their stories from the pandemic to “Belonging at Oxy.” The original pieces of art have been bound into an accordion-fold book, which, when stretched out, extends over 40 yards. You can see digital images of all submissions online, or we welcome you to come see the originals in the Special Collections and College Archives reading room on the 3rd floor of the Academic Commons.
