CSUN Alumni has partnered with the Oral History Project to create something special for all Matadors! Representatives from the Oral History Project will be reaching out to alumni like you by postcard, email and phone in the coming weeks to get your CSUN story. Alumni experiences will help build a special CSUN history book.
Your story is part of CSUN history, and we want to know how your alma mater has impacted you.
The Oral History Project is looking for stories about career success, love stories, first-generation graduate stories, or any story you want to share about CSUN or how CSUN influenced your life.
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 CSUN. PCI will help us collect updated contact information from those of you who may have moved and inadvertently lost touch with your alma mater.
With our limited resources, we'd never be able to tackle a project like this. By partnering with PCI, we're able to access their trained staff of real, live human beings who are excited to listen to what you have to share. PCI will also help collect and assemble the stories into the Matadors Memories book that we can share with all CSUN Alumni.
Do I Have to Buy Something?
No. This project is being done at NO COST to the CSUN Alumni Association. The project is completely funded by the alumni who choose to purchase the Matador Memories book that will be produced at the end of the project. Various book packages will be offered. PCI will also offer you the option to purchase other CSUN Alumni branded merchandise. You are welcome to purchase these items, but you are not required to do so to participate in the project or order the Matador Memories 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. We sincerely thank every person that participates and chooses to purchase the book.
Soon you will be receiving 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. The PCI team will collect stories throughout 2021. After that, they will enter a post-production phase editing the data. We hope to have the book distributed in late summer 2022.
We look forward to hearing from each and every one of you regarding your memories of CSUN.
If you have any other questions regarding the project, please reach out to PCI customer service desk at 1-866-647-3130 or the CSUN Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-677-2786.
