Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

The My Princeton Oral History Project was created for both undergraduates and graduate students of Princeton University. The project aimed to create a space for Princeton students who feel left out of the dominant Princeton narrative by capturing and sharing their unique experience. The oral history interview can cover any subject a student wishes: from interviewing dining staff to gathering interviews of students to discuss the difficulties of balancing school, family, and work. The main requirement is a current student must be involved in the process.
