This article examines the impact of interviewing at the end of life and the creation of a legacy document on student interviewers.. As part of an undergraduate class on death and dying, 36 students interviewed hospice patients, creating a hard cover memory book. An analysis of semistructured interviews with all of the students following completion of the project yielded three themes: greater appreciation for life, connection to my own family, and service and legacy. The importance of experiential approaches in death education was presented. Future research examining the emotional impact of these interviews on students was suggested.
