2019 Student Storytelling Festival: Stories Like Yours

This year, the Storytelling Festival was all about our students! The festival took place on Saturday, March 2nd, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the School of Information Sciences.

In collaboration with Associate Professor and Interim Dean for Academic Affairs Kate McDowell, the Festival brought together the iSchool community for a celebration of student stories. Student storytellers shared with peers and alumni stories of those who have inspired them, experiences that led them to graduate school, and ways that the iSchool has directed their professional goals.

We hope the festival will help you gain a new understanding of the iSchool, as tellers model ways that storytelling can communicate ideas, perspectives, and ambitions.
