VT Stories

A center staff member conducting an oral histories interview

Initiated in 2015 by the President’s Office and managed by faculty and staff in History, English, TLOS, VT Libraries, and the Alumni Association, the VT Stories Oral History Project collects and examines stories, memories, tall tales, tragedies, and triumphs of all members of the Hokie community to help us know our shared history and to make sense of it.

VT Stories highlights the exciting, memorable, and historic moments in Hokie lives that have forged strong and enduring connections. VT Stories transcends disciplinary boundaries. In particular, we see our inter- and transdisciplinary project as cultivating a VT-shaped learner by providing students with experiential learning across disciplines.
