As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of FEP, we invite the whole academic community to share photographs of the moments we lived together, moments that challenged, inspired, and made us grow. These images are part of our history, they are full of emotions. Let's honor those memories and celebrate the past that brought us here. Allow us to travel back in time and revive the magic of our College. Together, we will create a unique collection, always reminding us that we are part of something bigger.
