Featured exhibit

  • World War II and Western Hockey: What's the connection?

    Two new student exhibits in Waldo Library led the creator to discover a surprising link between the exhibits. Nicole Page leveraged her library experience and knowledge as a public history major to create both displays—one exploring the connection between World War II and Western Michigan, and the other on the history of Broncos Hockey. Check out the exhibits in the rotunda area on the second floor and discover what links the two exhibits.
