Oral History Project

The Project

Every Rosemont alum has a story, and we want to hear yours. However, with over 9,000 alumni, it would take many years to meet with each of you individually. That's why we've decided to embark on a new project called with PCI to collect the stories of alumni like you in your own words. These stories will be preserved in a book that celebrates the impact Rosemont College has had on your lives and who you are today. Every year we don't capture and preserve these stories feels like another opportunity lost, so we're excited to get started today!

Frequently Asked Questions

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an Oral History Publication for Rosemont College. PCI is a family-owned business based in Dallas, TX that has published directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation for over 100 years. This project allows us to hear about your personal experiences from your time at Rosemont College and how the school helped to shape your life since then. And, while we have you on the phone, we want to make sure your contact information is up to date.

Yes, in a few different ways:

  • Updated Information – allows us to effectively communicate with and engage alumni
  • Legacy – sharing and collecting stories preserves the history of our school
