We’re searching for our oldest living graduate!


In April 2015, Post University will celebrate its 125th Anniversary and we want to celebrate with our oldest living graduate.  As part of a year-long build-up to our Quasquicentennial, we’re sending out a call to alumni and their families from around the world. If you think you are the oldest living graduate, or a member of your family is, we want to hear from you!

Once found, we’ll include our Senior Alumnus in upcoming anniversary events. We also want to capture the former student’s life story and college memories via audio or video recording to share with everyone in the Post community.

“This person could be anywhere in the world, and this search is a great part of our upcoming celebration,” said Post University President Don Mroz. “Post has been a part of Waterbury for so long, and we’re thrilled to reach out to our neighbors, here and around the world, to hopefully meet some of the many former students who have been a part of our history, and hear their life stories.”

Alumni: Share your stories through our living history project

We don’t just want to hear from our oldest living graduate. We’re beginning a year-long project to record oral and video histories of Post stories from alumni who have graduated throughout Post’s 125-year history.

Graduates can come to Post’s campus to have their stories recorded, or can submit audio or video recordings to connect@post.edu.  All submissions will become part of a “living history” of the school, to be shared during the lead-up to our anniversary year and beyond.

Individuals who might have information regarding eligible alumni, or who would like to be considered for the oral and video history project, should contact the us via email (connect@post.edu) or phone (Bob Sembiante, Communications Associate / 203.591.7360).
