This is a historic opportunity to add your personal perspective to the narrative of how future generations will learn and research about this pandemic. The purpose of this collection will be to document how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting everyone on a personal level. From the Freshman who was only half-way through their second semester, to the Senior who was getting ready to graduate and go onto the work force or into Graduate School. Or the faculty member who had to find a new way to teach the materials in their class or do distance research instead of physically going to the research destination. We want to hear from everyone.
