Documenting your personal experience of the coronavirus pandemic
In March 2020 Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections initiated a campus-wide project to encourage students, faculty, staff, alums and other members of our community to document their personal experiences during the coronavirus outbreak and contribute them to the College history collection. While the College’s official response to this unprecedented event will be recorded and preserved in the Archives, we want to ensure that your personal experiences and reactions are included as well. All members of the campus community are invited and encouraged to participate.

We are interested in your stories about the shift to remote instruction and learning, studying and working from home, living on campus during a pandemic, and the ways you and your friends and family stayed in touch. Please use this Google Form to submit your items. If you have questions or need technical assistance, please reach out to us at Thank you for helping to preserve our history.
