! Humans of Fairview Project
You are human—therefore you matter. You are part of Fairview—therefore your story matters to us.
Students and staff, help raise awareness about what makes us each unique and what unites us by participating in the Humans of Fairview project. You can take part by sending a personal message/story and a picture of yourself(preferably on campus or doing something Fairview related) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be posting submissions regularly on the Humans of Fairview Facebook page.
Your submissions can be short or long, serious or funny, straightforward or thought provoking—but above all, they should be honest. Likewise, candid photos are encouraged. We want to get to know the real you, whoever that may be. View the Humans of Fairview Facebook page for possible examples, or see this document for prompts and inspiration.
Students from various clubs and organizations will also be conducting in person interviews throughout the next month. Contact email@example.com or attend a brief Interviewer Introductory Training on Wednesday, February 22 during CAT time in room 853 to get involved as a Humans of Fairview Interviewer.
