FDU Oral History Project

Tell US Your Story

The Fairleigh Dickinson University Alumni Association is collaborating with trusted partner PCI, the company that already produces our alumni directory on a new project. The goal of the Fairleigh Dickinson Oral History Project is to collect the stories of alumni like you in your own words and preserve them in a book that celebrates the impact Fairleigh Dickinson has had on your lives and who you are today. Every year that we don’t capture and preserve these stories feels like another opportunity lost, so we’re excited to get started today!

PCI Partnership

For this project, FDU is partnering with PCI, which gives us access to their trained staff who are looking forward to hearing your stories of your time at FDU. PCI will also assemble and create a book filled with your stories. Please note that we have only shared your contact information with PCI in conjunction with this project. We have NOT sold your contact information, or otherwise used it for outside marketing purposes.

So what Fairleigh Dickinson story will you tell?

• Did a special faculty or staff member have a profound impact on your life?
• Did you meet your sweetheart at Fairleigh Dickinson?
• Can you trace your career path back to a defining moment at our alma mater?
• Have connections you made on campus turned into lifelong friendships?
• Were you at Fairleigh Dickinson during a historical moment?

Have You Moved?

As part of this project, we are also taking this opportunity to help make it easier for you to stay connected to Fairleigh Dickinson. PCI will help us to collect updated contact information from those of you who may have moved and inadvertently lost touch with your alma mater.

Do I have to buy something?

No. This project is being done at NO COST to Fairleigh Dickinson University. The project is completely funded by the alumni who CHOOSE to purchase the  book that will be produced at the end of the project. The book, which will be available in hardbound and digital formats, is offered at $149.98. PCI will also offer you the option to purchase other Fairleigh Dickinson University branded merchandise such as a hat, t-shirt, sweatshirt and a travel bag.You are welcome to purchase these items, but you are not required to do so to (a) participate in the project or (b) order the oral history book. Again, we’d never be able to embark on a project like this without the support of our amazing alumni and the partnership with PCI. So we sincerely thank every person that participates and chooses to purchase the book.

What’s next?

Soon you will be receiving (or may have already received) email and postcard communications from the PCI team with instructions on how to participate. We’d like to invite you to share one of your stories with us, and take part in this first of its kind project to honor the experiences and voices of our alumni. 

We look forward to hearing from each and every about how FDU changed your life.
