Classic Secrets



Dear Frank,

That’s my hand!

I found the “I hate college classes” note in a Postsecret book in the campus bookstore while I was a grad student probably 9 or so years ago. I remember looking around at the thousands of students there at the time and wanting to somehow reach that note writer, as I couldn’t stand if something happened to them (even if I didn’t know who they were), as well as just empathisize with the feelings they shared! So I photocopied it and sent it along to you, with my message in return.

To the note writer: Wherever you are, I hope you are doing well, and I send you the same good energy as I did then.

In an effort to create an open and safe forum for students and staff to express secrets, regrets, fears, desires, talents, hidden acts of kindness, or confessions, DFEi has brought Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Frank Warren’s PostSecretU to the college. Student secrets are on display now on campus.

PostSecret Art Exhibit

PostSecret postcards have been mailed from around the globe. Now, many of them are circulating back out into the world into museums, colleges, and galleries. In the past, they have been displayed at the White House, Smithsonian Museums, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Now you can see them at the institutions below. Contact Jan Warren <> for more information on how to invite the secrets to your museum, college or university.
