FSC Alumni Stories

A Farmingdale State College Alumni Oral History Project

With the launch of a new alumni database and the introduction of the Alumni Rambler newsletter, we have decided to embark on a new project called FSC Alumni Stories to collect the stories of alumni like you in your own words. We will preserve these memories about friendship, scholarship and community in a book that celebrates the impact Farmingdale State College has had on your lives and who you are today. Now is the time to capture these stories and share your legacy with future generations of Farmingdale alumni. 

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to help us with this project. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation.

Have You Moved?

As part of this project, we hope to make it easier for you to stay connected to Farmingdale. PCI will help us collect updated contact information from those of you who may have moved and inadvertently lost touch with your alma mater.

Your Story

  • So what FSC Alumni Story will you tell?
  • Did a special faculty or staff member have a profound impact on your life?
  • Can you trace your career path back to a defining moment at Farmingdale?
  • What are your favorite Aggie memories of life on the farm?
  • Have connections you made on campus turned into lifelong friendships?
  • Were you at Farmingdale during a historical moment?
  • Are you part of an alumni legacy family, meaning you have relatives who are also Farmingdale graduates?

PCI Partnership

Farmingdale State College has a contractual agreement with PCI and the names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Farmingdale State College for the publication of the Oral History Publication will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Oral History Publication and except as required by court order or law. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Farmingdale State College any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Farmingdale State College or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Oral History Publication.

Does FSC benefit from this project?

Yes, in a few different ways:

a. Legacy – Preserves the oral history of our school

b. Updated Information – Allows us to effectively communicate with and engage alumni

c. Revenue – Generate donation revenue for alumni programs

The project is completely funded by the alumni who CHOOSE to purchase the FSC Alumni Stories book that will be produced at the end of the project.  The book is offered at $150.  PCI will also offer you the option to purchase other Farmingdale State College branded merchandise such as a hat, t-shirt, sweatshirt and a travel bag.  You are welcome to purchase these items, but you are not required to do so to (a) participate in the project or (b) order the FSC Alumni Stories book. 

We’d never be able to embark on a project like this without the support of our amazing alumni and the partnership with PCI. We sincerely thank everyone who participates and chooses to purchase the book. The Farmingdale State College Oral History Publication is available for sale only to Farmingdale State College alumni.

d. Pride – Wearing apparel shows support and love for our school

What’s next?

If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for the Oral History project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you, make any updates where needed, then ask you to share your story about your time at Farmingdale State College. Your story will be recorded and the sound clip provided to Farmingdale State College at the conclusion of the project.

If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information and submit a story. If you have questions, you may call PCI’s customer service desk at 1.800.982.1590. You can call back at any time to share your story, or schedule a call back with a representative.

If you would like to provide photos to complement your story you will receive an email with a link to upload them. If you do not have an email address, you will be sent a mailer to send physical photos in to be used (note: photos may not be returned). You will receive an email prior to publication that will allow you to review your transcribed story and make any edits.
