This is NOT a SCAM!

The LSUS Alumni Association recently partnered with PCI to begin the Oral History Project. Alumni will receive postcards or email communications requesting that they call in to update contact information and share stories about their time at LSUS.

There is NO financial obligation or cost to share an oral history or update contact information. However, there is an offer to purchase a presale digital or hardback copy of the collected stories, as well as LSUS Alumni Association merchandise.

We hope that you share your fondest memories and how your time at LSUS has impacted the trajectory of your career. If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call or email our office.
