NSU launching oral history project

Northwestern State University is launching an engagement campaign to compile an oral history archive that will unite alumni across generations, professions, geography and life experiences.

“This project not only will help clean up data of our constituents and alumni, but it allows the alumni of Northwestern State University to share memories and highlights of their time at NSU,” said Danielle Cobb, associate director of Alumni Affairs. “Many of us have fond memories of attending events, having a favorite professor and forming lifelong friendships while at NSU. This project will allow us to all be taken back in time and share those lasting memories with others.”

Publishing Concepts (PCI) will be contacting alumni by mail, phone and email asking alumni to participate and update their information. The year-long project will be compiled into a book available for purchase in February 2022. Alumni can also submit two photos along with their information.

“We hope that alumni will share their life experiences and the meaningful experiences they had at Northwestern State,” Cobb said.
