Student Interviews: A History of American College Women

During the spring 2021 semester, Retold partnered with Dr. Bonnie Hagerman in the department of Women, Gender and Sexuality on a project for a new course, A History of American College Women. Dr. Hagerman’s students were charged with interviewing women from a variety of colleges and universities to learn about their collegiate experiences, with a particular emphasis on the recollections of fellow UVA students, past and present. The alumnae below spent time in dialogue with current UVA students from Dr. Hagerman’s class, sharing memories, experiences, and wisdom. Transcripts of these interviews, crafted by Dr. Hagerman’s students, have been archived for institutional memory. If you would like to learn more about Dr. Hagerman’s course, or the student interview project, you can connect with her at

Many thanks to the alumnae who participated in this project!
