We are UAlbany Students
And these are Our Stories.

Established in March 2015, Project MyStory is a community building effort to help students better acclimate to UAlbany and to work more effectively toward their goals.  We began in UAlbany’s Academic Support Center (ASC), where you will see many of the posters featured above. We are now co-housed in ASC and in the Center for International Education and Global Strategy (CIEGS).  Through videos, blogs, posters, small group meetings, community outreach, and presentations, students help other students by sharing their experiences – the good and the  bad; the ugly and the beautiful. Connections are established, relationships are formed, and hope overcomes pessimism through the telling of our stories.

Upcoming Events:

Our Dinner and Discussions have had to conclude early due to the COVID-19 crisis. Nevertheless, we are working on putting together content to keep you focused, motivated, inspired, and hopeful. These are difficult times, but summer is coming. There is a light and you are a part of that light. 

Join Us!

Every semester, students may apply to earn community service credit by becoming  Project MyStory  workshop facilitators, panelists, bloggers, and/or vloggers. Our students select themes that are important to them and that they feel are relevant to their peers. They write blog posts, hold small group discussions, and give presentations throughout the semester guided by the themes they have selected. Students are also welcome to share their stories just one time. We feature participants on our blog, in our office, and in advertisements and promotions. Join the MyStory Team!
