The Harry P. Weber University Archives Exhibition Room

The University Archives Exhibit is now open in Evans Library.  The room’s first exhibit was entitled “Vision Extraordinaire: The History of Florida Institute of Technology.” Visitors enjoyed the varied displays of documents, artifacts and more that mark key points in Florida Tech’s 56-year history.
