Ever wondered what Griffith University looked like waaay back in the ‘70s? You know, when the students wore flares, the buildings weren’t air-conditioned (gasp!), there was no WiFi in sight and the University was just in its infancy?

Luckily, we have the Griffith Archive to show us all of Griffith’s history.

We’ve trawled through and found some remarkable photos that inspired us to compare – Griffith: Then and Now.

We’ve had a go creating Then and Now photos – now it’s your turn!

How to enter

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Need some inspiration? Head on over to our Griffith University ‘Then’ photos album on the Griffith Archive facebook page for some ‘then’ shots of Griffith University. We would love to see what you can ‘now’ do with these old ‘then’ photos!

Entries will be regrammed on @griffitharchive and @griffithlibrary Instagram pages – the entry with the most likes will score a sweet $100!
