More than 1,000 photos are available now and the number keeps growing, says Steve Jessmore, assistant director of photos and image marketing at CMU.
As he shoots photos on campus of sports, events and campus life, he adds them to the store.
Homecoming. Leadership Safari. Commencement.
“It’s a great window into the university,” Jessmore says. “It shows you what people are doing, how they’re having fun. Now, everybody has access to our photo archives.”

Then, start browsing.
“Maybe there’s a part of campus that’s special to you, where you spent a lot of time,” Jessmore says. “You can order a print of Grawn Hall in the wintertime for your office wall. You might see a photo and say, ‘Wow, that would look good on a calendar.’”
You might suddenly see your own kid smiling back at you. Lots of photos show CMU students having fun.
Looking for a photo of your student-athlete, or a great stadium shot to remind you of a favorite CMU memory?
The CMU Athletic Department used to handle those photo requests, but now sports photos are available through the CMU Photo Store.
“It will be helpful to have everything in one place,” says Rob Wyman, director of athletic communications. “This is a very easy way to supply people with photos.”
Jessmore will be digging deep into the archives to add more historical photos, as well as adding new photos he takes. So check often.
In addition to photos — framed or unframed — you can order your favorite CMU images on magnets, tote bags, mugs, mouse pads, aprons, luggage tags, puzzles and more.
“Just think of all the stuff you can do,” Jessmore says. “You can get a print of Warriner Mall in the fall and mount your diploma on it.”
The hard part will be choosing which photo. Search “Warriner” and 146 images pop up.
Homecoming? More than 400.
