Alumni Oral History Project

Bluffton University will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2024. That will be 125 years of memories, meeting lifelong friends, professors changing student’s lives, first dates for future spouses and so much more.

The Alumni Oral History Project seeks to capture your story and add it to the university's history. When Bluffton celebrates future anniversaries, alumni will look back on these stories as we continue to celebrate our collective history. You are invited to be part of this momentous project!

Questions to start the memories flowing:

  • What is your favorite Bluffton memory?
  • Where is your favorite place on campus?
  • What was the most important thing you learned at Bluffton?
