Tell us your story
Every Knight has a story! SUNY Geneseo’s Office of Alumni Relations collaborated with Publishing Concepts (PCI) to assemble an oral history project, Geneseo Storytellers: A Celebration of 150 Years, in celebration of the College’s Sesquicentennial (150th) Anniversary (1871-2021). The project collected stories of alumni and friends and will preserve them in a book that celebrates the impact of SUNY Geneseo.
By partnering with PCI, interviews were conducted by trained staff who collected stories about your time at SUNY Geneseo. PCI is creating a book that will celebrate all of these stories.
The PCI team collected stories through March 2, 2022. Following editing and compilation of the data, Geneseo Storytellers will be shipped to those who purchased a copy in the fall of 2022. If you ordered Geneseo merchandise in addition to a book, your merchandise will arrive in the summer of 2022.
