Do You Know This Building? YES!

Are you a student, alumni, staff or former staff of the UWI, Mona Campus? How well do you know the Mona campus landscape? The UWI Museum is giving you an opportunity to test your knowledge of the campus landscape by engaging in an exciting activity of identifying the building(s) in photographs of the Mona Campus from the late 1940s onwards.

Over the next few months we will be posting on our social media pages thought provoking photos that will either drag your memory or stimulate your imagination.

A/V: GROWING UP ON WEST ROAD, MONA

Carolyn Chan grew up knowing the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies as her backyard. She considers herself a ‘West Road-ian’, having literally been born at #2 West Road when her father, Wilfred Chan, was in the Chemistry Department of the UWI Mona Campus. But the family also lived for some years at College Common, the other major housing area on the campus, where the Vice-Chancellor, professors, lecturers and senior administrators lived and where their children remember the 1960s and early 1970s as a time of freedom to roam and grow.

A/V: Pon di Ring Road!

Carnival in Jamaica first developed on the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, brought north by homesick students from the southern Caribbean region and nurtured by students and staff and their families. It’s something clearly remembered by persons who grew up as Campus Kids – spending years and even decades connected to the rhythms of the university and the region.
