How to Participate

Here’s how you can help tell the University of Illinois story.

Sample Story Topics

Not sure what to talk about? Here are some story ideas to spark your imagination.

Submit Your Story to Us

We encourage you to create your own U of I Storyography submission. It can be an audio clip, short video, photo, or letter. Please keep your submissions short! People will be more likely to listen, watch, or read it.

Send your submission to

  • Audio: send an mp3 that is no longer than 3 minutes for our audio stories collection.
  • Video: send a YouTube link that is no longer than 5 minutes.
  • Photo: send a jpg or tif with a caption or brief story for our scrapbooks. Upload your image here.
  • Lincoln Hall Memories, U of I Memories, and Essays: Share your memories of the classes, people, performances, or other ways your life intersected with campus.

Record Your Audio Story With Us

Recording in progress

If you live in or near Champaign-Urbana or plan on visiting the campus, we can record your story here. Plan on bringing a partner who will interview you. If that’s not possible, we can conduct your interview. Storyography entries recorded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will be preserved as part of the permanent archives in the University of Illinois Library.

Fill out this request form to schedule a Storyography recording in Champaign-Urbana.

Priority will be given to those areas we have not yet visited and to groups that include a variety of ages among the participants.
