La Salle University Oral History Project

Every Explorer alumnus/a has a story, and the La Salle University Alumni Association wants to hear yours. However, with over 57,000 living alumni, it would take many years to meet with each of you individually. That’s why we decided to embark on an oral history project in partnership with PCI to collect the stories of alumni like you. We are asking you to share your favorite memories of your time at La Salle.  These stories will be preserved in a book and audio recording that celebrates the impact La Salle University has had on your lives and who you are today.

Per our vendor partner PCI, we anticipate all books will be shipped by March 2023. If you have questions about your order, contact PCI customer service at 1-800-982-1590.

Update your Information Campaign

As part of this project, we are also taking this opportunity to help make it easier for you to stay connected to La Salle Alumni. PCI will help us collect updated contact information from those of you who may have moved and inadvertently lost touch with your alma mater.

Share your La Salle Story

What is your favorite memory/memories will you be willing to share?     

Have connections you made on campus turned into lifelong friendships?
Did a special faculty or staff member have a profound impact on your life?
Did you meet your “La Soulmate” on campus?
What activities and student organizations had an impact on your La Salle experience?
Are you a La Salle legacy or first generation member of your family to have graduated?
Can you trace your career path back to a defining moment at La Salle?

Partnership with PCI

With our limited resources, we’d never be able to tackle a project like this. By partnering with PCI, we’re able to access their trained staff who are excited to listen to what you have to share. PCI will also help collect and assemble the stories into a La Salle Memory Book that we can share with all Explorers. Please note, we have only shared your contact information with PCI in conjunction with this project. We have NOT sold your contact information, or otherwise used it for outside marketing purposes.

Do I Have to Buy Something?

No. This project is being done at NO COST to La Salle alumni. The project is completely funded by the alumni who choose to purchase the Memory Book that will be produced at the end of the project. Various book packages will be offered. PCI will also offer you the option to purchase other La Salle University branded merchandise such as a blanket and pullover. You are welcome to purchase these items, but you are not required to do so to participate in the project or order the Memory Book. Again, we’d never be able to embark on a project like this without the support of our amazing alumni and the partnership with PCI. We sincerely thank every person that participates and chooses to purchase the book.
