INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING ANNIVERSARY TOASTS & TRIBUTES

We want to hear from you! Please send us your videos, photos, and written material – send us anything! Our experts will use your submissions to create a special anniversary video to share on September 15 at our celebration in St. Louis and with our alumni.

TIPS TO GET STARTED

  • Shoot in a quiet area with little background noise: air conditioner, traffic, etc.
  • If possible, shoot during the day. Sit or stand near a window to illuminate your face. Try to avoid
    harsh light.
  • Avoid having windows or extra bright areas in the background.
  • You may want to create interview questions before recording. Have a friend or family member read the interview questions to you during recording.
  • Try to speak clearly with energy and emotion.
  • You can pause or redo answers, but don’t stop recording. We can edit later.

A FEW IDEAS FOR YOUR TOASTS & TRIBUTES
