Welcome to the New Blue's current archival project: Humans of New Blue. Inspired by Brandon Stanten's famous photoblog "Humans of New York," where photos of New Yorkers are accompanied by the wonderfully clear, short stories they tell. Our archive and media teams are working together to create a similar live archive: small stories from the lives of New Blue alumnae.

These stories may be from your bright college years, but they can also be a snapshot of any important moment or throughline in your life. Email us directly at with a draft, or fill out this form:
