University of Wisconsin Oshkosh alumni are invited to take a walk down memory lane and share their favorite experiences from campus life as part of the University’s first-ever Alumni Memories Project.
The names of all alumni who take part in the project will be entered in a drawing for a super Titan prize pack to be awarded in October in conjunction with Homecoming 2012, planned for Oct. 12-13.
“I have always enjoyed listening to alumni reminisce about their UWO days, and it will be neat to capture a glimpse of alumni life as part of this official memories project,” said UWO Alumni Director Christine Gantner. “Many alumni have shared that they not only received a high-quality education at UWO, but also lasting friendships and cherished memories. We hope this project inspires an opportunity for reflection.”
To take part, submit an old photo or video, along with a one-paragraph statement describing a most cherished UW Oshkosh memory, for inclusion in the multimedia scrapbook project to be unveiled during Homecoming 2012. Be sure to include name, graduation year, contact information and the name of the photo or video file to be submitted.
Follow these guidelines when submitting your memories:
- Print photos, along with the paragraph, should be mailed to Natalie Johnson, UW Oshkosh Alumni Relations, 800 Algoma Boulevard, Oshkosh, WI, 54901-8614. Photos will be scanned and returned.
- Electronic photos (the original jpg files from your digital camera at the highest-quality … not copies from Facebook or other websites) and videos running two minutes or less (saved in any video file format) should be submitted here, along with your paragraph in an MS Word file. Use the passphrase UWOmemories when submitting your files.
The deadline for Alumni Memories Project submissions is July 15, 2012. Please note: Project organizers reserve the right to edit submissions based on length or content.
