Saint Peter's University Oral History Project Partnership with PCI

Saint Peter's has collaborated with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), to create an oral history of the University in conjection with our 150th anniversary next year which will record our shared Peacock experiences. 

The collection of stories will be available for purchase from PCI in a special digital/print publication. While there is a fee to purchase the printed book and Saint Peter's braded merchandise, no purchase is necessary to contribute to the Oral History project. Saint Peter's will obtain digital copies of your stories which will be included in our archieves for years to come. Saint Peter's partnered with PCI in 2017 on the alumni directory and is pleased to be partnering with them once again. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at (201) 761-6122 or

Frequently Asked Questions

I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information and a story about Saint Peter's University. Is this a legitimate project or is it a scam?
