Each of us has a story to tell, drawing upon our history, life experiences and the personal details that make us unique. At Bay Path, we believe storytelling to be an act of inclusion. By sharing our diverse experiences and perspectives, our stories connect us, generate social awareness, and allow others to know the richness of our community.


This project serves as a platform which presents the authentic voices of our university. By creating a living archive of voices of the Bay Path community we hope to capture and share the fullest version of the collective story, so we encourage everyone (cis, transgender, and gender non-conforming) to share their stories.

Last year, we created the “I Am Bay Path” campaign to celebrate the fantastic people and stories behind the vibrancy, diversity and individuality at Bay Path. In developing “I Am Bay Path,” we quickly realized that there are many stories and perspectives that make Bay Path such a unique, inspiring place. So now, we’re using the epic power of social media to tell and share them.


So, what’s your story? What makes you so very you? The town you come from, your volunteer work, your awesome grandma, a hidden talent, a passionate cause, a truth you’ve discovered, a piece of great advice, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a quirky habit…


We’re looking for fun, funny and relatable, but also thoughtful, reflective and moving, basically anything you feel captures where you’re at and makes you go “Yay, Me.”


Own it. Snap it. Share it.
