This project provides alumni revisiting campus for Reunion an opportunity to share stories from their time at Bowdoin via 30-minute oral history interviews by Special Collections & Archives staff. Interviewees will be encouraged to recount stories of what brought them to the College, pre-orientation trip memories, campus life, study abroad, and the people that shaped their Bowdoin experience, from fellow students to faculty and staff. Interviews will be recorded on a digital audio recorder, preserved permanently with the Library's other digital collections, and made freely available online via Bowdoin Digital Commons with our other oral history projects.
