East Carolina University’s J.Y. Joyner Library is working with the campus Centennial Task Force to prepare an oral history of first-generation graduates of the university.

Twenty interviews will be conducted this spring and early summer with alumni who were the first members of their families to graduate from college.

Interviewees will be selected from the following time periods: pre-1945; 1946-1965; 1966-1985; 1986-2005.

An effort will be made to select interviewees who represent the spectrum of students on campus during each time period. Trained interviewers will ask alumni to discuss their family background, home community, college experience and the impact their education has had on their lives.
