dc.description.abstract History is sometimes portrayed as a dry, uninteresting subject. In a society that has much to look forward to, why would we want to spend time looking back? But people who argue this are missing the point—studying history is the exact reason we are able to understand our present and plan for the future. This is what the Ball State University Honors College Oral History Project team set out to do in the Spring 2019 semester. The ten student team members conducted three video-recorded interviews each with prominent current and former Honors College faculty and staff and notable alumni. The end product is the first university record to tell a complete story of the Ball State Honors College. These recorded interviews will be permanently archived in the University Libraries' Digital Media Repository, along with transcripts produced by the student interviewers and hired transcribers. en_US
