Eastern Illinois University Alumni Association Oral History Project

Eastern Illinois University owes its legacy to you: the people who made the place. The time you spent here, and the memories you made along the way, have left a legacy and shape the story of our school.

That’s why we’re excited to partner with Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) on the Oral History Project to gather stories from our alumni community about their experiences at Eastern Illinois. As a tribute to past and future Panther generations, we invite you to share memories celebrating the people and events that have impacted your journey. Your stories will be recorded, transcribed, and, along with submitted photos, published as a book that will be available for purchase.
