Word of Mouth

Have you ever heard a story that left you awed? Ever thought you knew someone, until they shared a captivating personal experience?

This is the event to create those moments. It’s very simple: you, your story, and some folks who want to hear it.

Guidelines for storytellers:

  • Adhere to the theme: a fresh start.
  • Stories are about you and have a beginning, middle, and end.
  • No ranting.
  • No notes, stories should be told from memory.
  • Stories should be no longer than 5 minutes.

*Exceptional stories will be selected to be retold at Sensoria 2012.

How do I tell my story?

Each campus will host a storytelling event in the spring 2012 semester.  Cato’s event will be held on Wednesday, February 29th from 10:30 am – 11:30 am, Cato II Learning Lounge (basement level).


Unsure what this event will be like?

Check out videos of similar events around the country. Word of Mouth is an homage to The Moth, a NYC based non-profit storytelling group. The Moth Radio Hour is available on public radio stations and winner of a 2011 Peabody award.

Library Facelift

Welcome back to our returning students, and a big welcome to our new students!  Over the break, library staff cleared out what was formerly the Literature and Reference bookcases to make room for a quiet study space. Four new computers have been added to the workstations in the third picture below.


The library hours have changed slightly this semester:

M-Th 8 am – 6 pm M-Th 8 am – 8 pm
