“This will be a reunion of sorts for all former Victoria College students and employees,” said Victoria College President Dr. David Hinds. “The come-and-go event will be an opportunity for them to reminisce, renew old acquaintances and be a part of VC’s efforts to chronicle its history from those people who made VC what it is today.”

Guests are urged to bring photographs, newspaper clippings and memorabilia from their Victoria College days for members of the Museum of the Coastal Bend to document, scan and photograph. Former Victoria College students and employees can also participate in oral history sessions. Some of the materials will be featured in a Victoria College history exhibit at the museum.

“We will construct a pop-up exhibit there at the event as photos and memorabilia are brought in by former students and employees,” said Elizabeth Neucere, exhibits and collections manager for the Museum of the Coastal Bend.

The event will include guided tours of VC’s Emerging Technology Complex and demonstrations of state-of-the-art equipment used for training students at the facility.

A reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and a photo booth will conclude the event from 5 to 6 p.m.
