Storage of past photos and compilation video about MUKC

We are creating a storage to store all past photos to document as much of the past (almost) 30 years of history of MUKC! If you have any photos you would not mind sharing, you can upload it here.

Toney is also working on the compilation video and any videos you share would be awesome to have! (i.e. Shiais, social events, etc)
