ABOUT: THE CHANGE I’VE SEEN
In the fall 2014 inaugural capstone course for the Southern Connecticut State University Journalism Department, nine journalism students interviewed senior citizens to share the biggest change they have experienced or seen in their lifetime. Each student was required to interview three people over the age of 75. One of the persons could be a family member, and one at least one had to be someone of a different race. The oldest interviewee was 102. These are some of the many interviews. For the students, it was an eye-opening, emotional, thought-provoking and humbling experience that left an indelible mark on their lives.
