THE POWER OF STORYTELLING

How the Oral History Project is Redefining Collegiate Communications and Connection

When your alumni are wishing they were in college again, what will help them transport back to those great times?

Every website has pretty pictures. Every social post has a clever headline.

With the Oral History Project, you have hundreds to thousands of engaging alumni stories to take them back to those moments in time – an extraordinary college experience, great classes, caring professors, and degrees that will set them up for future success.
